Mean: 19.86; Median: 16.5; mode: 42.

#### Explanation:

**Mean**

To calculate mean you have to sum all the numbers and divide the sum by the quantity of all numbers.

**Median**

Median of an **ordered** set of numbers is the center number if the quantity is odd, or the mean of 2 cennter numbers if the quantity is even. So the first step to calculate median is to order the data set.

**Mode**

Mode of the data set is a value (or set of values) which have the most occurences in the set. For example:

1) The set 1,1,2,3,3,3,5,6,8,8,8,10 has 2 mdes (3 and 8) because these numbers have the same number of occurences and it is the highest number.
