Geometric Mean
Geometric mean is defined as the positive root of the
product of observations. Symbolically,
It is also often used for a set of numbers whose values
are meant to be multiplied together or are exponential in
nature, such as data on the growth of the human
population or interest rates of a financial investment.

Harmonic Mean
Harmonic mean (formerly sometimes called
the subcontrary mean) is one of several
kinds of average.
Typically, it is appropriate for situations when
the average of rates is desired. The harmonic
mean is the number of variables divided by the
sum of the reciprocals of the variables. Useful
for ratios such as speed (=distance/time) etc.

Median
The implication of this definition is that a
median is the middle value of the
observations such that the number of
observations above it is equal to the
number of observations below it.

Steps to find Median of group data
1. Compute the less than type cumulative frequencies.
2. Determine N/2 , onehalf of the total number of cases.
3. Locate the median class for which the cumulative
frequency is more than N/2 .
4. Determine the lower limit of the median class. This is L
0
.
5. Sum the frequencies of all classes prior to the median
class. This is F.
6. Determine the frequency of the median class. This is f
0
.
7. Determine the class width of the median class. This is h.

Mode
Mode is the value of a distribution for which the
frequency is maximum. In other words, mode is
the value of a variable, which occurs with the
highest frequency.
So the mode of the list (1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4) is 3.
The mode is not necessarily well defined. The
list (1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 5) has the two modes 2 and 3.
