Is it possible to determine the mean of the distribution of 10 scores, but only 9 are given.

With a distribution of 10 scores, nine of them are 3, 5, 9, 1, 9, 2, 0, 3, and 9. The last one is greater than 5 but it is not 9.  Is it possible to determine the mean of the distribution?

Well, it kind of depends on what type of discrete data. According to Georg Cantor, the set Q of rational numbers is also considered discrete, but is dense. As a result, if all rationals in the interval 5<x<9 allowed, the answer is the same as for real numbers except that the mean must be rational.
