In a list of numbers such as 7, 10, 13, 13, 15, 20, 24
What is the means?
Mean = Average: (7+10+13+13+15+20+24)/7 because their are 7 numbers.
What is the median?
Median = Middle: 13. For an odd number of sorted terms it's exactly the middle one. For an even number of items, it's the average of the middle two.
What is the mode?
Mode = Most frequent: 13.
