It's asking for the measure of the center which is what a median measures
anonymous
  • anonymous
now if it asked for an average of the data then you would go with the mean

which would be better to answer the question? No problem I'm having troubles tooo : (
anonymous
  • anonymous
well 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
nkhanfar
  • nkhanfar
I know
nkhanfar
  • nkhanfar
But when I tried for the mean I got 2.75
anonymous
  • anonymous
i 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.
