Mean Median Mode Range Definitions
Mean – Mean is another word for average. The mean of a set of numbers equals the sum of the numbers in the set divided by the number of objects in the set. Example: For the set 5, 10, 13, 12, 11, 10, the mean is 10.167.
Median – The median of a set of numbers in the middle number in the set when arranged from least to greatest. If a set has an even number of objects in it, the median is the mean, or average, of the middle 2 numbers. Example: The 5, 10, 13, 12, 11, 10 arranged from least to greatest is 5, 10, 10, 11, 12, 13. Therefore the median is the mean, or average, of 10 and 11. Therefore the median = 10.5.
Mode – The mode of a set of numbers is equal to the number that appears most in the set, the most common value in a group. For the set 5, 10, 13, 12, 11, 10, the mode equals 10. If 2 numbers appear the same number of times, the set is considered bimodal. A set with more than 2 modes is considered multimodal.
Range – The range of set of numbers in the difference between the greatest value and the lowest value in the set. For the set 5, 10, 13,12, 11, 10, the range is 8. (13-5=8)
