7.3 Data Interpretation 1 Objective A. Mean, Median and Mode Mean (Average) The mean of a set of numbers is the sum of the numbers divided by the number of addends. Example 1. A student received scores of 72, 87, and 54. Find the average of the scores. Solution: Add the scores, then divide by 3. 72 +87 +54 = 213, Then: 213  3 =71. Answer: The students average is 71. Lori has 4 math tests with scores of 76, 85, 92, and 91. Find the average of all four tests. Your Turn Problem #1 Answer: Lori’s average is 86.

7.3 Data Interpretation 3 Your Turn Problem #2 Answer: Sonya’s G.P.A. is 3.4. CourseGrade# of Units MathA4 BiologyB5 P.E.A1 MusicB4 Sonya earned the following grades for one semester. What was her grade point average? (Round to the tenths place.)

7.3 Data Interpretation 4 Once a set of data is listed in order, from smallest to largest, the median is the middle number if there is an odd number of values. If there is an even number of values, the median is the number that is the average of the two middle numbers. Median Example 3. The salaries of six administrators at a large company are as follows: \$72,000, \$112,000, \$68,000, \$91,000, \$71,000, \$81,000 What is the median salary of the administrators? Solution: Arrange the numbers in order smallest to largest: 68,000 71,000 72,000 81,000 91,000 112,000 The median is the average of the two middle numbers. The mass, in grams, of five eggs are as follows: 15 g, 19 g, 19 g, 14 g, and 18 g. Find median mass of the five eggs. Your Turn Problem #3 Answer: 18 g The two middle numbers are 72,000 and 81,000

7.3 Data Interpretation 5 The mode of a set of data is the number or numbers that occur most often. If each number occurs the same number of times, there is no mode. Mode Example 4. Find the mode of these data. 23, 24, 27, 27, 18, 29 A set of data has just one mean and just one median, but it can have more than one mode. It may also have no mode—when all the numbers are equally represented. Solution: The number that occurs most often is 27. Answer 1. There is no mode. 2. The modes are 55 and 67. Your Turn Problem #4 Find the mode or modes of these data: 1. 8, 12, 15, 27, 31, 42 2. 44, 55, 55, 55, 62, 65, 67, 67, 67, 72, 73, 75
