I have been developing a question about averages. I gave 5 months' profit values and asked what should be the profit in the 6th month to get an average monthly profit of $X? My intention is to ask about the average profit per month for the period of six months.

Now my question is if the words average monthly correctly represent the intention. What if I use six-monthly average? Would it be better or would it change the sense?


average monthly is correct.

six-monthly average would change the sense to imply the average of six months, not each month.
