Let's do some calculus! (32)

Calculus Level 4

If aiRa_i \in \mathbb{R}, where i{1,2,3,4,5,,n}i \in \left\{ 1,2,3,4,5,\cdots,n \right\}, then find the value of xx for which the expression i=1n(xai)2\displaystyle \sum_{i=1}^n {(x-{a_i})}^2 assumes its minimum value.

Bonus: Can this be solved this without calculus?
