Not as bad as it looks

 

Sum of values

_______________

Number of values

 

n  ( 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 )                  n (45)

________________________________   =       _______     =     5n

                            9                                                    9

 

 

Does this make sense  ???

5n is correct. Add the 9 like terms to get 45n, then divide by 9 to get 5n.
