since the data is not symmetrical, the center of data must be found by the median
Mehek14

so your answer will be the median

Okay, so I have to find the median?
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
yes

  • Mehek14
If the data was symmetrical, you would have had to find the mean

How would I know if it's symmetrical?

|dw:1434581477757:dw| you cut the data in half at the peak and if both sides of the data are the same the data is symmetrical

  • Mehek14
however when you cut your data at the peak, the sides are not the same

  • anonymous
So what do I do when it's in half?
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
you look and see if both sides are the same
anonymous
  • anonymous
So for this one, they're not the same, right?
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
correct so to find the center of data you use the median if they were the same you would use the mean
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm really slow at math, sorry. But okay, how would I use the median?
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
that would be the center of data

median=number in the middle of all numbers in the data set for ex.: 3,3,3,5,6,7,12,15,17 the number (in order) in the middle is 6 so 6 is your median
