    the of a set of the data
    average
    3, 4, 4, 10, 15, 16, 18
    70  7 =
    10
    Just
    add and divide
  • 7. Median
    the number
    middle
    3, 4, 4, , 15, 16, 18
    10
    10 is the median
    Justfind the middle
  • 8. Median
    numbers not in sequence must be ordered
    6, 12, 2, 6, 4
    2, 4, , 6, 12
    6
    6 is the median
  • 9. Mode
    the number that repeats the
    most

    4 is the mode
    The number that appears the most

    3 18
    18 – 3 = 15
    Just subtract largest and smallest

    1, 1, 3, 7, 11, 13, 20
    Mode
    56  7 = 8
    Median
    Mean
