Hi, this may seem like a silly question, but I'm gunna ask it anyway...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have the ff. data for acceleration:

0

9.152

8.43

9.07

7.731

10.423

When I calculate the average acceleration, would it be the sum divided by 6 or would it be the sum divided by 5? That is, should I include the "0" in calculating my average?

Thanks in advance~
