1. How to take the mean value if a zero reading is present?
Such as R1=0 , R2=2 , R3=1 ... What's the mean value? Is it 1 or 1.5?
2. I think its 1 because theyre fairly close. As 1 is close to two and 0 is close to 1, then that means 0 is close to 2
3. you include the 0 when taking a mean

The mean = (0 + 2 + 1)/ 3 = 1
