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.
