    Looks like it autocorrected to their home and property section...

    From this page: In the Stanley Group the top 10 creditors, mostly sub-contractors, are owed $3,143,610, an average of $168,205 each.

    Surely if the top 10 creditors are owed $3,143,610, the average amount owed is $314,361?

    My thoughts are some are owed much more than 300K, others less than 100K, hence the average being around that particular number

    but yes if they were all owed a fair even split of that total provided

    That's not how averages work. You take the total and divide by the number of observations. They've given us the total (3,143,610) and the number of observations (10), so the average should be easy to calculate.

    Three people owe $120

    They might owe $1, $1 and $118; $40, $40 and $40; $10, $20 and $90

    The average is always $40

    Unless they are taking the median average?


    Or maybe not, I forget stats.

    Median, mode and mean are different things but can all describe a type of average in statistics. Median is the middle value of a range of numbers in numerical order, mode is the number that repeats the most (there is no mode if there are no repeats), and mean is the summed and divided average as described above. Given the article says they owe an average of $xxx each, is suggest they mean the mean, and so they are wrong.

    That's just headline speak.

    I actually was talking about the terrible headline, but good spotting with the Rennie/Joesph switch

    Vindication!

    Sort of!
