Distribution is symmetric.

#### Explanation:

If the mean, median and the mode of a set of numbers are equal, it means, the distribution is symmetric.

The more skewed is the distribution, greater is the difference between the median and mean, and we should lay greater emphasis on using the median as opposed to the mean.
