since the data is not symmetrical, the center of data must be found by the median
so your answer will be the median
Okay, so I have to find the median?
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
however when you cut your data at the peak, the sides are not the same
So what do I do when it's in half?
you look and see if both sides are the same
So for this one, they're not the same, right?
correct so to find the center of data you use the median if they were the same you would use the mean
I'm really slow at math, sorry. But okay, how would I use the median?
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
