# How do you find the mean, median, and mode of 4, 5, 3, 3, 1, 2, 3, 2, 4, 8, 2, 4, 4, 5, 2, 3, 6, 2?

#### Explanation:

Mean is the average. To calculate the average, first add the numbers together. 4+5+3+3+1+2+3+2+4+8+2+4+4+5+2+3+6+2= 63
Then divide the answer by how many numbers there are. 63/18( that's how many numbers there are)= 3.5. That is your average

To find the median you need to put the numbers in numerical order.
1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3 ,3 , 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 6, 8.
Then you start crossing off the numbers from each end until you find the middle number. The middle number is 3.
Just remember if it's an amount of odd numbers you will find a definite middle, if it's an amount of even numbers you will find two middle numbers. Take two those numbers and divide it by 2 and you'll get your middle number, e.g 3,3. 3+3= 6. 6/2=3. 3 is the middle number

The mode is the most common number. The most recurring number from this set of data is 2 because it came out 5 times.

Hope this helps!
