**Order the numbers and find the middle value.**

Warm Up Use the numbers to answer the questions. 146, 161, 114, 178, 150, 134, 172, 131, 128 1. What is the greatest number? 2. What is the least number? 3. How can you find the median? 178 114 Order the numbers and find the middle value.

**The mean, median, and mode may change when you add data to a data set.**

**Additional Example 1: Sports Application**

A. Find the mean, median, and mode of the data in the table. 7 5 11 Games 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 Year EMS Football Games Won mean = 7 modes = 5, 7 median = 7 B. EMS also won 13 games in 1997 and 8 games in Add this data to the data in the table and find the mean, median, and mode. mean = 8 modes = 5, 7 median = 7 The mean increased by 1. The modes remained the same. The median remained the same.

6
**An outlier is a value in a set that is very different from the other values.**

7
**Additional Example 2: Application**

Ms. Gray is 25 years old. She took a class with students who were 55, 52, 59, 61, 63, and 58 years old. Find the mean, median, and mode with and without Ms. Gray’s age. Data with Ms. Gray’s age: mean ≈ no mode median = 58 Data without Ms. Gray’s age: mean = 58 no mode median = 58.5 When you add Ms. Gray’s age, the mean decreases by about 4.7, the mode stays the same, and the median decreases by The mean is the most affected by the outlier. The median t is closer to most of the students’ ages. Ms. Gray’s age is an outlier because she is much younger than the others in the group. Helpful Hint

**Additional Example 3: Describing a Data Set**

The Yorks found 8 pairs of skates with the following prices: $35, $42, $75, $40, $47, $34, $45, and $40. What are the mean, median, and mode of this data set? Which statistic best describes the data set? mean: 358 8 = = 44.75 8 The mean is $44.75. The mean is higher than most of the prices because of the $75 skates, so the mean does not describe the data set best.

9
**Additional Example 3 Continued**

median: 34, 35, 40, 40, 42, 45, 47, 75 82 2 = = 41 The median is $41. The median price is the best description of the prices. Most of the skates cost about $41. mode: The value $40 occurs 2 times, which is more than any other value. The mode is $40. The mode represents only 2 of the 8 values. The mode does not describe the entire data set.

10
Check It Out: Example 3 The Oswalds found 8 pairs of gloves with the following prices: $17, $15, $3, $12, $13, $16, $19, and $19. What are the mean, median, and mode of this data set? Which statistic best describes the data set? mean: 114 8 = = 14.25 8 The mean is $14.25. The mean is lower than most of the prices because of the $3 glove, so the mean does not describe the data set best.

11
**Check It Out: Example 3 Continued**

median: 3, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 19, 19 31 2 = = 15.5 The median is $15.50. The median price is the best description of the prices. Most of the gloves cost about $15.50. mode: The value $19 occurs 2 times, which is more than any other value. The mode is $19. The mode represents only 2 of the 8 values. The mode does not describe the entire data set.

12
**Some data sets, such as {red, blue, red}, do not contain numbers.**

In this case, the only way to describe the data set is with the mode.

Lesson Quiz At the college bookstore, your brother buys 6 textbooks at the following prices: $21, $58, $68, $125, $36, and $140. 1. Find the mean. 2. Find the median. 3. Find the mode. 4. Your brother signs up for an additional class, and the textbook costs $225. Recalculate the mean, including the extra book. $74.67 $63 none $96.14

**MA Basketball Games Won**

Check It Out: Example 1 A. Find the mean, median, and mode of the data in the table. 11 6 4 13 Games 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 Year MA Basketball Games Won mean = 8 mode = 6 median = 6 B. MA also won 15 games in 1997 and 8 games in Add this data to the data in the table and find the mean, median, and mode. mean = 9 mode = 6 median = 8 The mean increased by 1. The modes remained the same. The median increased by 2.

20
Check It Out: Example 2 Ms. Pink is 56 years old. She volunteered to work with people who were 25, 22, 27, 24, 26, and 23 years old. Find the mean, median, and mode with and without Ms. Pink’s age. Data with Ms. Pink’s age: mean = 29 no mode median = 25 Data without Ms. Pink’s age: mean = no mode median = 24.5 When you add Ms. Pink’s age, the mean increases by 4.5, the mode stays the same, and the median increases by The mean is the most affected by the outlier. The median is closer to most of the students’ ages.
