• mean
Add up the numbers and divide by how many there are:

87+75+89+81+90+73+85+96+65+92+78+79+83+85+79+90+86+72+74+88+81+85 = 1813

There are 22 numbers.

â‡’ mean = 1813 Ã· 22

= 829/22

â‰ˆ 82.41

• median
Sort the numbers into order; the median is the middle number (if an odd number of numbers) or the mean of the middle two (if an even number of numbers):

Sorted: 65, 72, 73, 74, 75, 78, 79, 79, 81, 81, 83, 85, 85, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 90, 92, 96

There are 22, so the median is the mean of the middle two which are the 11th (83) and 12th (85) numbers:

â‡’ median = (83+85) Ã·2

= 84

• mode
The number which appears the most often. Having sorted the list for the median, it can be seen that the one with the highest frequency appears three times:

â‡’ mode = 85
