For the first time in quite a while, I did 50 solves on the 3x3x3 cube, an “average of 50”, and the mode for number of seconds (ignoring centiseconds) was 11. This means that 15 of the 50 solves (30%) were between 11.00 and 11.99, and only 14 (28%) were between 12.00 and 12.99.Capture

For large amounts of solves, the “average” is the arithmetic mean of all solves but the best and worst 5%, rounded up. Since I did 50 solves, the best and worst three were eliminated, and the remaining 44 had a mean of 12.37. Not to shabby, given that I am a little bit out of practice and have only been seriously solving for the past few days. At competitions like Nationals, the middle three of five solves are averaged. My best average of that type is 10.86 and you can view it on YouTube here.

Here is the entire list of my times and their respective scrambles in that average of 50, for the record: (<10 seconds are in bold)
