Is Avg Monthly Searches = Avg Monthly Users in adwords keyword tool

Hi While doing keyword research for my website TFTH, I encountered with an confusion and need your solution.

In adwords keywords tool, for every keyword we get Avg Search Volume. My query is can we take it as Avg Users?

For ex I am targeting Assignment Help keyword and for this I get 12100 avg search queries. So is it ok to say 12100 users are searching for this keyword in a month?

Kindly confirm.
