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

median= 4&3 range=3 mode= no mode

It is the number in the middle of the set from least to greatest or greatest to least. If you're having trouble, remember this song: Mean, median, mode.Mean, median, mode. Here's what they are. Here's what they are. The mean is the one that you add then divide. The median is the one in the middle of the line. The mode is the one you see most of the time. Mean, median, mode. Mean, median, mode.

A normal distribution is symmetrical; the mean, median and mode are all the same, on the line of symmetry (middle) of the graph.

Mean, median and mode are ways to find averages. The mode is the most common answer in a set of data. The median the number that is in the middle when the numbers are put in order. The mean is the statical average.

An outlier pulls the mean towards it. It does not affect the median and only affects the mode if the mode is itself the outlier.

The mean. Or the mode.

The outlier is capable of affecting mean median mode and range it affects mean because the average has changed if affects median because you have to cross out 1 more letter it doesn't affect mode it does affect range because an outlier is a number that i far away from the other numbers * * * * * It does not affect the median.

The median and mode cannot be outliers. For small samples a mode could be an outlier.

Calculate the mean, median, and range with the outlier, and then again without the outlier. Then find the difference. Mode will be unaffected by an outlier.

The mean is affected the most by an outlier.

Yes, no, and no. The mean uses all numbers so it WILL be influenced by an outlier (sometimes heavily). The median is the middle number, so it can't be. The mode is the most frequent number, so it really can't be.

There would be a difference to the median. The old number wouldn't be the median but the mode wouldn't change. If the outlier is a high value, it will cause the mean value to shift to the higher side, while a low valued outlier will drop the mean value to a lower number.

35, 23, 15, 23: Mean: 24 Median: 23 Mode: 23 35, 23, 15, 23, 100: Mean: 39.2 Median: 23 Mode: 23 In this particular case, only the mean is affected by adding the outlier of 100.

The mean and median become smaller, the mode does not change.

Mean: 15.5 Median: 16.5 Mode: 20 Range: 15

what are the median, the mode and the outlier of the numbers 116, 119, 121, 122, 124, 124, 128
