6th Grade Statistics

One student says you can only use the mode to describe categorical data, but you can use the mode, median, and mean to describe numerical data. Is the student correct? Why?

The student is correct. Can you determine why? (Hint: Categorical data is also called nominal data or qualitative data.)

I need help with statistics!! Im in 6th grade!!

The student is correct because the median is used to find the middle numeric value of a data set, the mean balances out the data so all numbers in a data set are the same. This means that the mean and median can only be used for a numeric data, so this student is correct.

that is correct! my teacher said i was doing great! THANKS!
