The average value of a continuous function $f(x)$ is equal to

$f_{\text{ave}}=\frac1{b-a}\int\limits_a^b f(x)dx$

this can be extended to higher dimensions as well with multiple integrals. for a discrete set of $n$ objects, the average value is simply the arithmetic mean:

$\overline{x}=\frac1n\sum_{k=1}^n x_k$
