Figuring Out Averages

Hi,

I've never really been good at math (Never tried hard enough I guess). But I've got a problem that I need to figure out. I'm creating a web analytic application and trying to figure out the average here is killing me

Here is what I have:

Keyword Impressions Average Position
Math Magic 560 1.245
Math Guru 12 1.458
Math Average 2 1.652


What I would like to do is get the average position for those 3 records. Problem here is that I can't just take the 1.245+1.458+1.652/3. This is because the average wouldn't be correct since 560 impressions outweighs the 12 and 2.

Explanation of the above numbers:

The keyword "Math Magic" was searched 560 times and our ads average position was 1.245, the Keyword "Math Guru" was searched 12 times and our ads average position was 1.458, finally, "Math Average" was searched 2 times and our ads average position was 1.652.

If I wanted to get the average position for these three keywords and also take into consideration the number of impressions how would I accomplish that?

Thank you in advance for all your help.
