MEAN

I use it in class when looking at my student's scores... Often I look at mean, median, and mode to decide to reteach a concept or not.

The mean deviation from the median is equal to the mean minus the median.

The question is how do the mean and median affect the distribution shape. In a normal curve, the mean and median are both in the same point. ( as is the mode) If a distribution is skewed, its tail is either on the right or the left. If a distribution is skewed the median may be a better value to use than the mean since it has less effect on the shape. Also is there are large outliers, the median has less effect and is better to use. So the mean has a bigger effect on the shape many times than the median.

You would use the median if the data were very skewed, with extreme values.

The median of 65 and 90 is the same as their mean: 77.5The median of 65 and 90 is the same as their mean: 77.5The median of 65 and 90 is the same as their mean: 77.5The median of 65 and 90 is the same as their mean: 77.5

who discovered mean median and mode

Mean, Median and Mode. They are three kinds of averages.

You could use mode over median or mean when calculating probability. Mode calculates the greatest number of times an object or number will appear.
