Weighted mean

Weighted means allow a more convenient way to average when the many of the observed values repeat. Instead of the raw data the data is organized in count by value. See the spreadsheet video or the spreadsheet from more details.

$$ \bar{x} = \frac{\sum_{i=1}^{n} x_{i} w_{i}}{\sum_{i=1}^{n} w_{i}}$$
