Thus, in the above case this yields x = 64 / 12 = 533 . , and N represents total number of subjects. Note that this is a weighted average and that means based on a larger number of subjects receive greater weight in determining the grand mean. Because of this it is not appropriate to find the grand mean with unequal group sizes by simply taking the average of the means— a mistake frequently made.
