Default For Rank in the ROL of the program will you match?

I was looking at this NRMP data from 2015 and it says for family medicine the average number of ranked applicants per position needed to fill all positions was 5.9 what does that mean? can anybody enlighten me about this?

Thank you!!!

In some programs with 6 positions number 30 on their list has a chance, in some it doesn't have.
Last year a family medicine program with 6 positions would get filled with number 36 on the list on average.
