1. 13 is not correct

Mean=(19+24+25+17+13+18)/6=?

2. 51 is incorrect

32, 33 ,25, 36, 48, 51, 28, 23, 54, 52, 45

Sort them out in ascending order:

23,25,28,32,33,*36*,45,48,51,52,54

The middle number is the median.

3. $187.50 is not correct.

The perimeter is 2(40+50)=180 ft.

$187.50 is almost $1 per ft. The actual cost is $3.75 per foot, so multiply $3.75 and 180 to give the fencing cost.

1. No, it's not correct. Add the six scores and divide by 6 to find the mean.

2. Wrong. The median is the middle number when you arrange the ages in numerical order.

3. Way off. Please try again.
