Harmonic Average
The mean of a set of positive variables. Calculated by dividing the number of observations by the reciprocal of each number in the series.

Also known as "harmonic mean".

Alternately, the harmonic average could be thought of as the reciprocal of the arithmetic mean of inverse values.
