# meanf

weighted mean of a vector or a matrix

### Calling Sequence

```m = meanf(x, fre, [orien])
m = meanf(x, fre, 'r') or m = meanf(x, fre, 1)
m = meanf(x, fre, 'c') or m = meanf(x, fre, 2)```

### Arguments

x

A real or complex, full or sparse matrix, or an integer matrix, or an hypermatrix.

fre

A real or complex, full or sparse matrix, or an integer matrix, or an hypermatrix.

orien

The orientation of the computation. Valid values are

• 1 or "r": result is a row, after a column-wise computation.

• 2 or "c": result is a column, after a row-wise computation.

• "*": full undirectional computation.

m

The mean.

### Description

This function computes the mean of a vector or matrix `x`, each of them counted with a frequency given by the corresponding values of the integer vector or matrix `fre`.

For a vector or matrix `x`, `m = meanf(x, fre)` or `m = meanf(x, fre, "*")` returns in scalar `m` the mean of all the entries of `x`, each value counted with the multiplicity indicated by the corresponding value of `fre`.

`m = meanf(x, fre, 'r')` (or, equivalently, `m = meanf(x, fre, 1)`) returns in each entry of the row vector `m` the mean of each column of `x`.

`m = meanf(x, fre, 'c')` (or, equivalently, `m = meanf(x, fre, 2)`) returns in each entry of the column vector `m` the mean of each row of `x`.

### Examples

```x=[0.2113249 0.0002211 0.6653811;0.7560439 0.3303271 0.6283918]
m=meanf(x,rand(x))
m=meanf(x,[10 10 10;1 1 1],'r')
m=meanf(x,[10 10 10;1 1 1],'c')```

### See Also

• mean — mean (row mean, column mean) of vector/matrix entries
• stdevf — standard deviation
• variancef — variance (and mean) of a vector or matrix of frequency-weighted real or complex numbers
