A baker average is based on the average bowled as a team. With baker Bowling, each player bowls 2 frames. So it's considered as if it's a one person team, even though 5 people bowled.

Book averages are typically calculated by using the ending average of a certified league, providing the average has at least 12 games (or 21 depending on the situation). If a player has bowled multiple certified leagues in a season, each league will have it's own book average, however the highest of the averages is what the bowler will be using normally for tournaments for the following year.
