# What is the mean, median, and mode for 3.56,4.40,6.25,1.20,8.52,1.20?

Mean = $4 \frac{113}{600}$
Median = $3.98$
Mode = $1.20$

#### Explanation:

Mean is the average of the numbers

$\text{mean} = \frac{3.56 + 4.4 + 6.25 + 1.2 + 8.52 + 1.2}{6}$

$\text{mean} = 4 \frac{113}{600}$

Median is the "middle" number when you place your numbers in ascending order

$1.20 , 1.20 , 3.56 , 4.40 , 6.25 , 8.52$

Since there are 6 numbers, then the "middle number" is the average of your 3rd and 4th number

$\text{median} = \frac{3.56 + 4.40}{2} = 3.98$

Mode is the number that occurs the most which in this case is $1.20$ since it occurs twice
