Textbook Problem

Find the mean, median, and mode for the following

sample of scores:

6, 7, 3, 9, 8, 3, 7, 5

To determine

Find the mean, median and mode for the given sample of scores.

Explanation

**Given:**

The sample of scores:

3, 6, 7, 3, 9, 8, 3, 7, 5

Here

**Formula used:**

**Calculations:**

To find mean, add all scores and divide the sum by number of scores in the sample.

To find median, first arrange data in ascending order as shown below and then find the middle score.

3 | 3 | 3 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 7 | 8 | 9 |

For nine scores, the median would be

The mode is most occurred score in the sample
