First do this:
1. Find the mean, median, and range for each of the two data sets.

The mean is the average. Add each set of numbers together and divide by 7 to find the mean.

The median is the middle number. Arrange each set in numerical order and find the middle number.

The range is the difference between the highest number and the lowest number.

The range rule of thumb says that the range is approximately four times the standard deviation.
