I would use a FOR loop and collect the generated points in a preallocated vector like, M=74; n=88; T = Range[10000]; For[i=1, i<=10000, i++, R= RandomReal[{15,23}]; T[[i]]= M/(R/n); ]; myMean = Mean[T]; However, this is very much a procedural programming approach. I'm sure the Mathematica experts helping on this list can provide a more efficient approach...
