> Trouble With Mean

I'm having a hard time figuring out how to use the MEAN keyword in Version 6 of ExamView Pro. I have 5 numbers and I want to find the mean. I know that I can do it with addition and division but I need to use the MEAN keyword. I'll also need to find the mode, range and median.

You can use the makelist function to create your list. The first parameter of the makelist function is the number of items in your list. Parameters may contain variables. The second parameter is the lower extreme for your list. The third parameter is the first quartile. The fourth parameter is the median. The fifth parameter is the upper quartile. The sixth parameter is the upper extreme. You may use a -1 to indicate you have no preference for the value of the parameter. The last parameter is True or False stating whether you wish to have the list sorted in ascending order.
You can then use the mean, median and mode functions to find each.

num1 range(5,8)
datalist makelist(num1,5,-1,-1,-1,30,False)
mean1 mean(datalist)
mode1 mode(datalist)
median1 median(datalist)

I have attached a bank with this example.

That's certainly a lot easier than what I did.
