Hi everyone,

Got a very quick question about the ** mean** and

**in Python NumPy.**

`average`

While going through the Data Science course, they mentioned using `np.average()`

to find the mean… but a little bit further down the road the Hint in an exercise (Variance in Weather, Task 4) suggested me to use `np.mean()`

.

So I’m a little bit confused as to when I should use `np.average()`

and `np.mean()`

and what actually the difference is between the two. Since they both seem to do the same thing.

Thanks!
