The mean is the average of the set of numbers. To find it you have to add up all of the numbers in the set and divide by however many numbers there are in the set. For example, if you had the set: 1, 2, 3, then you would add them up to get 6. Since there are 3 numbers you would divide by 3 to get 2. The range is the highest number in the set minus the lowest number in the set. Example: of you have the set: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, then the range would be 8-1, or 7.

The mean is 5. The median is 5. There are two modes = 2 and 7. The range is 7.

mean= 2, mode= 1 and 3, median= 3, and range= 2

The range is the spread of data - the largest number minus the smallest. The mean, mode and median are types of average. The mean is the sum of the numbers divided by the number of numbers (e.g. the mean of 1, 1, 3, 5 and 8) is 3.6). The mode is the number that appears most often (1 for the previous example). The median is the 'middle number'. To work it out, place the numbers in order from lowest to highest. If the number of numbers is odd, the median is the number in the middle (3 for the given example). If the number of numbers is even, the median is the mean of the two middle numbers (e.g. for 1, 1, 3 and 5, the middle numbers are 1 and 3 so the median is 2). The mean and median often are similar but the mode is often greatly different to the two other averages.

From the number set 1, 2, 3, 4, I can tell that the range is 3, The mean is 2.5, the median is 2.5, yet there is absolutely no mode.

The mean is the average of the numbers Add up all the numbers, then divide by how many numbers there are. Example What is the mean of these numbers? 6, 20, 10 1. Add the numbers 6 + 20+ 10 = 36 2. Then divide by how many numbers ( 3 numbers) ( 6 20 10 ) 3. 36 divide by 3 = 12 The mean is 12

Add all the numbers together and divide by that total by the numbers. For example: 2 + 3+ 2+5 = 12 . There are 4 numbers ( 2, 3, 2, 5) So 12 divided by 4 = 3. The mean is 3.

The range is 11. (14 - 3 = 11)
