The first set of data only has n = 4.
Mode is the most frequently occurring score, if any.
Median = 50th percentile.
Range = highest score - lowest
The mean = sum of scores/number of scores
Subtract each of the scores from the mean and square each difference. Find the sum of these squares. Divide that by the number of scores to get variance.
Standard deviation = square root of variance
Z = (score-mean)/SD
I'll let you do the calculations.
