There is descriptive and inferential statistic. Mean is a descriptive statistic and it is usually referred to as the average. Mean is a central tendency measure along with mode and median. Not the frequency is summed for mean calculation, but it is the value of each of the observations. For example, in a histogram, if the observations are the scores of students, the frequency would be on y axis, and the scores on x axis. When calculating the mean; the values to be used would be the scores and not the frequency or percentage. Percentage is a descriptive statistic also.
