Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, to find the mean, you add up all the numbers and divide by the amount of numbers. And, to find the median you put the numbers from least to greatest and find the middle. (If there are 2 middles, you add them together and divide by 2) Im not going to do it for you, but i will help you find it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for the mean i got 446 so divide by how many numbers there are that would be 20 so 446/20 =22.3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually, were working only on 2005 right now, so you would add 20 + 20 + 25 + 40 + 43 and divide it by 5. Try again :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct! Great job! So, your mean in 2005 is 25.6 Now, we have to check if 25.5 is also the median.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0than 38/5=7.6 would be for 2006 than 75/5=15 for 2007 than 185/5=37 for 2008

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yep! Now, you can use your finger if you like (I do!) to find the number in the middle! (If there are 2 numbers in the middle, add them together and divide by 2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For example, the median of 2005 would be 25 because its in the middle :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.08 & 15 i think right because we cancel out 2005 & 2008? find the number from 2006 & 2007. 8+15=23 23/2=11.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually, there all 5's and 5 is an odd number, so there would be a middle.. the medians are below if this helps: Median: 25 = 2005 8 = 2006 15 = 2007 47 = 2008

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you had 6 numbers, you would add the 2 in the middle to find your middle, but these are all in 5's so there is a middle for each data set.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, im placing the means and medians below. Tell me which year shares the same number :) Mean: 25.6 = 2005 7.6 = 2006 15 = 2007 37 = 2008 Median: 25 = 2005 8 = 2006 15 = 2007 47 = 2008
