Homework Help: math

Posted by jessica on Wednesday, August 5, 2009 at 10:20pm.

Averageville is considering levying a flat tax on its citizens.
To get an idea of the amount of revenue this tax
would raise, the city council instructed the city staff to
make a census of households to determine the “average”
household income. The city accountant claims that they
should use the median household income, rather than
the mean. What do you think? Explain.
