To work out the average measurements of a child’s hand the following two dimensions are collected. These are drawn on the diagram below. The average measurement is then calculated using the ‘mean average’. 
1. Collect 10 measurements for ‘A’ and ‘B’ dimensions. 2. Add each column to find the total. 3. Calculate the mean average by dividing each total by the number of measurements in each column.
