Mean, Median, Mode, and Range

### PowerPoint Presentation:

A Free Internet Resource Compiled And Modified By Jigar Mehta

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Mean is the average of a set of data. To calculate the mean, find the sum of the data and then divide by the number of data.

### PowerPoint Presentation:

12, 15, 11, 11, 7, 13 12 + 15 +11 + 11 + 7 + 13 = 69 69 / 6 = 11.5 First, find the sum of the data. Then divide by the number of data. The mean is 11.5

### PowerPoint Presentation:

An electronics store sells CD players at the following prices: \$350, \$275, \$500, \$325, \$100, \$375, and \$300. What is the mean price? Find your answer before clicking!

### PowerPoint Presentation:

\$350 + \$275 + \$500 + \$325 + \$100 +\$375 + \$300 = \$2225 \$2225 / 7 = \$317.86 The mean or average price of a CD player is \$317.86.

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Median is the middle number in a set of data when the data is arranged in numerical order.

### PowerPoint Presentation:

12, 15, 11, 11, 7, 13 First, arrange the data in numerical order. 7, 11, 11, 12, 13, 15 Then find the number in the middle or the average of the two numbers in the middle. 11 + 12 = 23 23 / 2 = 11.5 The median is 11.5

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Find your answer before clicking! An electronics store sells CD players at the following prices: \$350, \$275, \$500, \$325, \$100, \$375, and \$300. What is the median price?

### PowerPoint Presentation:

First place the prices in numerical order. \$100, \$275, \$300, \$325, \$350, \$375, \$500 The price in the middle is the median price. The median price is \$325.

### PowerPoint Presentation:

The mode is the number that occurs the most.

### PowerPoint Presentation:

12, 15, 11, 11, 7, 13 The mode is 11.

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Sometimes a set of data will have more than one mode. For example, in the following set the numbers both the numbers 5 and 7 appear twice. 2, 9, 5, 7, 8, 6, 4, 7, 5 5 and 7 are both the mode and this set is said to be bimodal.

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Sometimes there is no mode in a set of data. 3, 8, 7, 6, 12, 11, 2 , 1 All the numbers in this set occur only once therefore there is no mode in this set.

### PowerPoint Presentation:

\$100, \$275, \$300, \$325, \$350, \$375, \$500 What is the mode ? Find your answer before clicking!

### PowerPoint Presentation:

\$100, \$275, \$300, \$325, \$350, \$375, \$500 There is no mode!

### PowerPoint Presentation:

The range of a set of data is the difference between the largest and the smallest number in the set. For example, consider the following set: 40, 30, 43, 48, 26, 50, 55, 40, 34, 42, 47, and 50 To find the range you would take the largest number, 50, and subtract the smallest number, 26. 55 – 26 = 29 The range is 29!
