Hi Ms. Sue. That is what I'm guessing I have to figure out. They say the median is 6. so out of 8 5 10 3 # I have to figure out what this (#) value is? I don't know if I should do the five number summary and box plot or just box plot??????

Do it whatever way your teacher wants.

Did you get the missing number for the mean?

(8+5+10+3+x)/5 = 6

AWESOME! I put 6 in between 3 5 6 8 10 but I thought that was too simple.

It's not 6, Renee. You have to solve for x in the equation I made for you.

(8+5+10+3+x)/5=6

(26+x)/5=6

26+x=30

x=?
