Math

Please help me! I found the mean temperature in a week in July, which was 87 5/7 degrees. I found the median temperature of the week, too which was 89 degress. Now can anybody help me compare the mean and median temperatures? This means a lot to e and I want to make a good impression on my teachers, but I don't know how to do this very well... Also which do you think is best to use when planning a trip-the mean or the median and why?

THANK YOU!

  1. In this case, the mean and median are close together. But often, the median would be best for planning a trip. The average may be skewed because of a couple of unusually hot or cold days.
