Given the following data: 18,12,18,20,16,20,18,36,16,18, 14,20,24,20,5,18,10,15,24. Determine the mean, median and mode of this data
I'll use an example. Hopefully, this will help you with your problem.
Suppose we had these scores: 3, 4, 5, 5, 5, 10, 10.
To find the mean, add up all the scores and divide by the total number of scores. The total number of scores is 7. Therefore, the mean is 42/7 = 6.
The median is the middle score, which is 5. (If you have an even number of scores, the median is the average of the two middle scores.)
The mode is the score that occurs most frequently, which is 5.
Be sure to list your data in order before determining the mean, median, and mode. This will help you see the median and mode more clearly.
