    Try these steps: 1. Find the mean of all values 2. Find the distance of each value from that mean (subtract the mean from each value, ignore minus signs). Create a table with two headings - Value and distance from mean value you calculated from step 1) 3. Then find the mean of those distances

    And remember that distances have no sign (i.e.never negative)
