See explanation.

#### Explanation:

#"mean" = "sum of all the numbers"/"number of numbers in a collection"#

#"mean" = (3.2+3.5+3.2+3.8+7.2+4.2)/6 = 25.1/6 = 4.18 -># #3# s.f.

Mode is the most common number in your data set/sample,which in this case is

To find the median, arrange the numbers in your set in order, from smallest to largest.So

#3.2, 3.2, 3.5, 3.8, 4.2, 7.2#

If you have an odd number of numbers in your data set, the formula is

In this case, you have

#0.5 * (3.5+3.8) = 3.65#
