## Data Analysis: MEAN (also called AVERAGE)

AVERAGE
MODE
The mean/average is the total of the numbers
MEAN divided by how many numbers there are.
MEDIAN
To work out the mean/average:
RANGE a) Add up all the numbers.
7 + 9 + 11 + 6 + 13 + 6 + 6 + 3 + 11 = 72
b) Divide the answer by how many numbers there
are. There are 9 numbers. 72 ÷ 9 = 8
So the mean value is 8.
Note: sometimes, you do not get a whole number.

AVERAGE

MODE

## To work out the mode:

a) Put the numbers in order.
3 6 6 6 7 9 11 11 13
b) Look for the number that appears the most.
6 appears more than any other number. So the
mode value is 6.

MEDIAN RANGE

The median is the middle value. The range is the difference between the biggest
and the smallest number.
To work out the median:
a) Put the numbers in order. To work out the range:
3 6 6 6 7 9 11 11 13 a) Put the numbers in order.
b) The number in the middle of the list is the 3 6 6 6 7 9 11 11 13
median. 7 is in the middle. So the median b) Subtract the smallest number from the biggest
value is 7. number. 13 - 3 = 10 So the range of this set of
If there are two middle values, the median is numbers is 10.
10
halfway between them. For example, in the set of
numbers 3 6 6 6 7 8 9 11 11 13 there are two
middle values, 7 and 8. The median is halfway
between 7 and 8. The median is 7.5.
