Suppose you are looking for a job. You interview with a company that has 10 general employees each make $100 per day, 7 assistants each make $400 per day, 3 managers each make $900 per day, and the owner who makes $1900 per day. The interviewer tells you that the average salary and median is $400 per day. This Company is offering you a job at $110 per day.
From what you have learned so far in calculating central tendency, which method would you use to make your decision and why?

  1. The distribution would be positively skewed, so it would not be true that "the average salary and median is $400 per day." I am assuming that the mean is your "average salary."

    For a skewed distribution, the median is the best (most central) indicator of central tendency.

    However, I don't have any idea of your qualifications for the various positions to lead to your decision.
