### Statistics

1. 1. STATISTICS 1. Measures of Central Tendency Mode, median and mean For a sample of discrete data, the mode is the observation, x with the highest frequency, f. 1  2N −F For grouped data in a cumulative frequency table, the median = L +  C  fm      where L is the lower boundary of the median class N is total frequency F is the cumulative frequency before the median class C is the interval of the median class fm is the frequency of the median class ∑ x . For grouped data, x = The mean is the average of all the observations. Hence, x = N (a) Find the mode, median and mean for 2, 3, 1, 2, 6, 8, 9, 3, 2, 3.
