    So we need to find four things here. 1. MEAN 2. MEDIAN 3. MODE 4. RANGE To make this easier for us, let's first take ALL the numbers, and line them up, from SMALLEST to BIGGEST. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 35 - 42 - 43 - 46 - 49 - 53- 53- 57 -57 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Okay, so now that the numbers are all in order, from smallest to biggest, I'll explain how to find the MEAN. The MEAN is the average, of all the numbers. This can be done in two easy steps. Step 1: Add all of the numbers together. Step 2: Divide the total by however many numbers there are. (There are nine numbers in all. So, after you add all of them together, divide your total by 9.) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The MEDIAN is the number that's right in the MIDDLE of the entire number line. This can also be done in two easy steps. Step 1: Line up all the numbers in order, from smallest to biggest. Step 2: Find the number that is right in the middle of the number line. I'll tell you the answer now: the MEDIAN is 49. Try to find the median for yourself, and you'll probably see what I mean. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The MODE is the number that appears the most amount of times, in the entire number line. So, all you have to do is find the number that appears more often than any other number, in the entire number line. I'll tell you something though: this number line has more than one mode. It has two. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The RANGE is the BIGGEST number, minus the SMALLEST number. This can be done in three easy steps. Step 1: Find the BIGGEST number Step 2: Find the SMALLEST number Step 3: SUBTRACT the SMALLEST number from the BIGGEST number. There's your range!

    If there's something about the explanations that you don't understand, you're welcome to ask. I'll re-explain it for you. If you'd like, you could show me all four of the answers that you come up with, for mean, median, mode, and range. I can double check them for you.
