  • divide by how many numbers there are
e.g.



33/5=6.6

Median

find the middle number

if there are two middle numbers add them up and divide by two


e.g.

  • you can have more than one mode

  • you can have no mode

and by the way, under the mean picture, it says 33/5=6.6, but in your picture it says that the answer is 4.3 repeated, just wondering what that was for. :P
