Well, one of the possibilities that come to my mind is that there could be some values which would be outliers (Remember outliers?  they're those numbers which are too large or small, when compared with data  they exaggerate the real mean, etc. of the data set.). In this case, if you had an outlier, then, when you took the average (remember  mean is the same thing as average), it would definitely affect the salary of the salon owner.
