Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2since the data is not symmetrical, the center of data must be found by the median

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so your answer will be the median

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If the data was symmetrical, you would have had to find the mean

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So for this one, they're not the same, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2correct so to find the center of data you use the median if they were the same you would use the mean

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that would be the center of data

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0median=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
