Question

How hot does it get in Death Valley? The following data are taken from a study conducted by the National park system, of which Death Valley is a unit. The ground temperature (F) were taken from May to November in the vicinity of Furnace creek.

146.  152.  168.  174.  180.  178.  179

180.  178.  178.  168.  165.  152.  144

compute the mean, median, and mode for these ground temperatures.

Step 1

It provided that the sample size of ground temperature (n) is 14.

Consider X is defined as the ground temperature and F is the unit of ground temperature.

The mean of ground temperature can be calculated as:

Step 2

The median of ground temperature can be calculated as:

Arrange the data into ascending o...
