"mean" is the "average" in normal terms. Add the terms, and divide by the number of terms.

"mode" is simply the most common value. If there are more 3s in the list than any other number, 3 is the mode.

The "median" is the most complicated of the three terms. When you put the list in order, the median is the number that has the same number of terms less than it as above. If there are an even number of terms, you need to find the two in the middle and take the mean of their values.

example: {14, 10, 11, 6, 5, 15, 1, 15, 16}

mean: 93 / 9 = 10.333◄

mode: 15 because there are 2 of them and only one of any other.◄

median: Put them in order: {1 5 6 10 11 14 15 15 16}

11 is the middle term, so is the median.

If you were to include another 14, then the list is {1 5 6 10 11 14 14 15 15 16}, so 11 and 14 are in the middle with 4 above them and 4 below them, so the median would be (11+14)/2 = 12.5◄

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is the median between 500 and 1 million?

To find the median of an even number of values, you need to take the mean of the 2 middle numbers. Since there is only 2 numbers, take the mean to find the median. The median is (500 + 1M)/2 = 500250.

Mean is the average, median is the middle. The get the mean just add up all the numbers and divide by how many numbers you added. The get median just find the middle number

How do you find the average on a frequency table?

* To find the mean (or average) of a standard frequency table, you must firstly cross-multiply the frequncies with the independent variable in the left column. * Then, add up these products and divide by the total number of frequencies. * For grouped frequency tables, you must find a mid-point, a half-way value in each group, before cross-multiplying.

How do you find the mean and median for dichotomous data types?

To find the mean, you all them all up and divide by how many ever there are. To find the median, you put them in order and the middle one is the median. If there are an even number of data, you take the two in the middle, add them together, then divide by 2.

How do you find the median with two numbers?

To find the median with two numbers, do as you would to find the "average" or the "mean" by finding the sum between the two numbers and dividing the sum (or total) by two.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of median?

Median cannot be used for qualitative data (a mode can).The sampling distribution of the median is complicated (the mean is well studied).Median can usually be used for data that can be ordered without there being a ratio scale. For example, "small-medium-large", or "very negative-negative-neutral-positive-very positive". A mean cannot be calculated without arbitrarily assigning a numerical value to the terms.A median is not dependent on all the values which means that it is not distorted by outliers (extreme values).It is easy to find the median value from cumulative frequency charts.
