1. If the student who is not 12 is 13, then mean age of the class
= (27*12+13)/28
= 12.04
which is different from the median age of 12.
Work out the mode and you'll get the answer.
Post if you wish it checked.

3. The median and mode are the same which is 12 yrs old. Median is the mean of the middle two values if there are an even number of students. So the number of students is 28 (which is even). So the middle two numbers are both 12 because the student who is not 12 is either younger or older therefore that age would not be a middle number. So the median is (12+12)/2 =12 yrs old. The mode is the number or numbers that occurs most often. In this case that number is 12. So the mode is 12 yrs old.

10. The answer is 16 for the median and 12 for the mode bc the median is the middle number and the mode is the number most seen so the number most seen is 12 bc one child is 12 in a class of 28 and the median number of 12 and 28 is 16 so the median is 16.
And the mode is twelve

13. Mode: 12
Median: 12

mode is the value that appears most frequently in a data set. Of the 28 students all but one are 12. This means that the mode will be 12 as it’s the number that appears the most.

median is the middle value in a list ordered from smallest to largest
In this problem there is a total of 28 numbers. 27 numbers will all be 12. One regardless of it being under 12 or greater than… in the order of smallest to greatest , the unknown age will either be in the beginning or end. But because we know there are 28 numbers the two numbers that will for sure be in the middle will be 12,12(there won’t be one because the total of numbers is 28) . To find the median when there are two middle numbers you will find the average of both numbers- so 12+12=24 24/2=12 therefore the median is 12 just the same as the mode.
