Step 1

Given data
(3, 8, 1, 6, 3, 4, 11, 3, 4, 3, 5)
Measure of central tendency is given by mean, median and mode
Mean is given by

Step 2

Median is given by
Arrange the data in increasing order
1,3,3,3,3,4,4,5,6,8,11
Total 11 data are there so median will be

Step 3

Mode is the most frequent observation
3 has the highest frequency
So, mode = 3
Here Median is the best measure of central ten...
