1 of 5

There are three ways to describe the central tendency. One of them is by getting the mean or the average of a given set, where it is computed as:

$m=\frac{\text{sum of terms}}{\text {number of terms}}$

Using the given:

$m=\frac{79+72+80+81+40+72}{6}$

$m=\frac{424}{6}$

$\boxed{m=70.7}$

The average heart beats per minute is 70.7.
