Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well if you said that you picked median 1.5 and that was wrong then it has to be mean 3. The wording on this question does make it a little confusing on which one they want lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But when I tried for the mean I got 2.75

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i did too but its closer to 3 rather than 1.5 and the two median choices are both wrong due to process of elimination so median 3 is your best choice.
