Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Are you able to find the median of this data set? {0, 0, 5, 8 12, 13, 15, 18, 18, 19 22, 24, 26, 27, 27, 27 33, 35, 36 42, 44, 46 57}

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then the median is 26.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the mode?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so "the median is greater than the mode" is false

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the range of this data set?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep 57 is the correct range, not 52

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you break up the data set into two halves, you'll find that the lower or left half is 0, 0, 5, 8, 12, 13, 15, 18, 18, 19, 22 what is the median of this data set shown above?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the median of the lower/left half of the data is exactly equal to the value of Q1 Q1 = first quartile

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so C is right. How about D?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's one of the things I'm having trouble with. I can't figure out which graphs are symmetrical and which aren't.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0where is the median? what value is it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The median is in the middle and it's 24.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well if this data set was perfectly symmetrical, then you would have a mirror like quality of the data values. The mirror itself would be at the median, aka the middle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but notice how we have one lone outlier at 57 in contrast, we have a bunch of values clumped around the single digits (0, 0, 5, 8) and then a bunch more in the teens (12, 13, etc etc). So there are a lot more data values on the left side end, compared to the right end
