Median, Mode, and Range
Median- When you arrange the given set of data from least to greatest, the median will be the number in the middle or it would be the mean of the two middle numbers.
Mode- The mode of a given set of data is the number that occurs most often.
Range- The range of a given set of data is the difference between the greatest number and the lowest number.
Find the median and mode of the given set of data:
40, 38, 40, 37, 33, 30, 20, 24, 21, 17, 19
Step 1: Order the data from least to greatest to find median
Find the range of the given set of data:
17.91, 21.21, 19.05, 24.26
The greatest number is 24.26 and the least number is 17.91. So, the range is 24.26-17.91=6.35
