You add all the numbers up and then divide by the amount of numbers there are. e.g 2+4+6= 12, there are 3 numbers (2,4,6) therefore you divide 12 by 3, and you have 4, therefore 12 is the mean.

The mode is the most common number, so if you have 3,3,4,5,5,5,5,6 and you need to find the mode, the mode is 5.

The median is the middle number, so if you have 1,6,9,114,300 then 9 is the median as it is right in the middle.
