Denise was in charge of collecting contributions for the food bank. She received contributions of $10, $60,$10,$20, and $90. The next potential contributor wanted to give an amount in line with the other contributions, so he asked,"What is an acceptable amount to give?" If Denise used the mean of the previous contributions as the answer to the question, what amount will she tell the potential contributor?

The mean of $10, $60, $10, $20, and $90 equals (10 + 60 + 10 + 20 + 90) / 5 = 190/5 = $38.
