Ms. Sue knows that Tim = babygirl, right?

• Math -

Yep. :-)

By the way, Guido, I'm a retired English and social studies teacher and know enough math to help elementary and some middle school students.

Hi Guido,

For your information I am Tim. Not a Babygirl

• Math -

Tim,

You have the same question as babygirl.

Does Tim = babygirl and vice-versa?

To find the final exam score, add all the scores and then divide by the number of scores listed, which is 15.

==============================

Median is the middle value of a given list of numbers.

How do we find the median?

1-Put the numbers given in order from least to greatest.

2-If the list of numbers given is ODD, the median will be the middle number of the list.

3-If the list of numbers given is EVEN, we add the two middle numbers and then divide by 2.

Try it and then write back.

• Math -

176 is the mean
183 is the median. Not sure If the mean or median is more useful representative of the final examination scores

• Math -

Yes, you have the right mean and median. Usually we use the mean as representative of exam scores. That number takes into account the highest and lowest scores.
