A baseball game


Michael plays catcher for his school’s baseball team. He has always been a great player behind the plate, but this year as a junior, Michael’s offense is really improving. His batting average is .417 after six games, and the team is 6-0 ,six wins and no losses. They are off to their best start in years.

On the way home from their sixth game, Michael notes to his father that the attendance seems to be increasing due to the team’s great start, “There were 181 people at the first game, then 197 at the second, 203 the third, 204 the fourth, 212 at the fifth, and there were 227 at today’s game.” Just then, Michael’s genius younger brother Tony, just seven-years-old, computes the average attendance of the six games. What is their average?
