Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Whatcha need? I can help. You've got the median and mode already, yeah?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.025,21,38,29,32,44,38,21,16 Helps to put them in order first: 16, 21, 21, 25, 29, 32, 38, 38, 44 From here, the mean is the average. So take all of the numbers, add them up and divide them by the number of numbers you have in your list (in this case nine). Mode is the number that shows up the most. In this case you have two numbers that each show up twice. Median is the number in the middle of the sequence. Start from the outsides and cross em off one by one, one from the left, one from the right, until you reach the center number. This one is easy because there are an odd number of numbers, you will get one number for the median. Hope that helps.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the median would be 58?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The median, or middle number is 29. The MEAN, which means average, without doing any math, I can tell you it is not 58. Add all the numbers together and then divide by the number of numbers in the sequence. There are nine numbers in this sequence. Add them and divide by nine.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(16 + 21 + 21 + 25 + 29 + 32 + 38 + 38 + 44)/9. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry i gave the wrong number ..so for instance i rearranger the numbers in to median such as , 36,38,44,53,58,71,74,81,82,94 .. so the median would be 58 ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Also, I just read chat. There is such a thing as having 2 modes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the median is 58+71/2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In that case, you have 10 numbers so there will be two numbers in the center. The median is those two numbers added and then divided by 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here's the equation > 4x^2+20x24=0 and I've gotta factor and solve. I'm able to get the first step, and afterwards I dunno where to go.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So let's take out 4 first. Notice how the coefficients and constant can all be divided by 4 so we can do: 4(x^2+5x6)=0

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you distrubute that, you'll notice that it is the same as 4x^2+20x24=0

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We are going to leave that four alone for now. I'll explain it later. Can you factor (x^2+5x6)?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remember, the formula looks like (x+?)(x+?).

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The two ? should ADD to 5, the MIDDLE term. The two ? should MULTIPLY to 6, the LAST TERM (aka the constant).

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Great, that is exactly right.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, if (x+6)(x1) = (x^2+5x6), can you agree that 4(x^2+5x6)) = 4 (x+6)(x1) ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the four is allowed to stay out there ;) All remains balanced.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Noooo i dont get mean and mode and thatss y i need your help

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Mkay, so for mean: you must add up all the values and divide by the number of values listed.

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The mode is the most common number, so it'd be 10.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And then the median is what's in the middle: med=mid; you could remember it that way, I suppose.

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have six values, which is an even number, so there isn't really a centered value, so in this case, you select the two values in the middle and take their average.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i still dont get mean :S is it 8?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.010 + 50 + 10 + 2 + 4 + 10 = Your answer. So use a calculator to add those values up first.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My bad, typo, it would be 100, yeah.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good, now divide by how many values/numbers are listed.

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct. That's the mean. The average. Now you needa find the median.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02, 4, 10, 10, 50, 100

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See how there isn't a number directly in the middle?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you'd either take the average of the two middleish numbers, and if they're the same, they're both considered the median.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If it were 2, 4, 7, 9, 50, and 100, the median would be 9.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea i told u in the beh=ginig itss 8 lol but back of the book it shows 10

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you need to show your work? If you have answers in the back of the book, you just need to jot down the steps that give you those answers.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i said back of the book its sayss 10 for the median.. but i got 8 .. so i dont kno whats the right answer

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i added the number of prices which is 2+4+6=16/2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Median is middle, remember that. Med=mid.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you don't even need to do any calculating, you just need to determine which value/number is in the center.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Dude, IParke, can you make sure this fella knows what he's doing? I dunno if he's got it down yet, so if you've got time, give him random scenarios to work with ie finding mean, median and mode and all. Can you do that?
