MEAN FOR UNGROUPED DATA
• The sum of the values divided by the number
of values--often called the "average."
• Add all of the values together.
• Divide by the number of values to obtain the
mean.
• Example: The mean of 7, 12, 24, 20, 19 is
• (7 + 12 + 24 + 20 + 19) / 5 = 16.4

4. A savings and loan association makes
one car loan of P5000 at 10.5% interest,
a second car loan of P6300 at 10.8%
interest, and a third car loan of P4500 at
11% interest. What is the average
loan association for these three loans?
MEDIAN FOR UNGROUPED DATA
MEDIAN
 The value which divides the values into two
equal halves, with half of the values being lower
than the median and half higher than the
median.
 The middlemost value in the list of items
arranged in increasing or decreasing order.

Properties of Median:
 It is the value midway between the highest and
the lowest value in a rank order distribution.
 It is the point that divides the distribution into
two equal parts.
To find the median:
1. Sort the values into ascending order.
2. If you have an odd number of values, the
median is the middle value.
3. If you have an even number of values, the
median is the arithmetic mean of the two
middle values.
Example: A. 7, 12, 24, 20, 19
B. 12, 23, 18, 15, 24, 30
MODE
MODE
 the most frequently-occurring value (or values).
 the value that appears most often.

## To find the Mode:

 Calculate the frequencies for all of the values in the
data.
 The mode is the value (or values) with the highest
frequency.
Example:
For individuals having the following ages –
18, 18, 19, 20, 20, 20, 21, 23
Three types of Mode:
 Unimodal – a distribution of only one mode
Ex. 7, 3, 9, 7, 2, 1, 4, 7
 Bimodal – a distribution of two modes
Ex. 1, 2, 8, 5, 1, 2, 4, 9, 6
 Trimodal – a distribution of two modes
Ex. 9, 4, 6, 4, 1, 5, 1, 7, 9, 2, 3,
