506.43, 225.50, 504.38, 179.25

a. find the mean, median, and midrange weekly take-home pay for the assistants.

b. Which of these measures of central tendency is best represents typical weekly take-home pay for the assistants? explain.

• Finite Math -

Mean = (sum of scores)/number of scores

To find median, arrange scores in order of value. The median is that point which defines the higher 50% from the lower 50%.

Midrange = highest score-lowest score/2

The most central of these three measures (value in between the other two) would be the best measure of central tendency.

• Finite Math -

MIDRANGE actually = lowest + highest / 2
