The mean, median, and mode of a normal distribution are equal; in this case, 22. The standard deviation has no bearing on this question.

Coefficient of skewness and formula?

The coefficient of skewness is a measure of asymmetry in a statistical distribution. It indicates whether the data is skewed to the left, right, or is symmetric. The formula for calculating the coefficient of skewness is [(Mean - Mode) / Standard Deviation]. A positive value indicates right skew, a negative value indicates left skew, and a value of zero indicates a symmetric distribution.
