Question 1

Find the arithmetic mean, mode, and median

Arithmetic Mean = \( \frac{\sum fx}{\sum f} \\ = \frac{3900}{20} \\ \scriptsize \bar{x} = 195 \)

Mode = 180 because it is the number with highest frequency and it appears 8 times

Arrange in ascending order

90, 90, 180, 180, 180, 180, 180, 180, 180, 180, 210, 210, 210, 210, 240, 240, 240, 240, 240, 240

Median = \( \frac{180 \; + \; 210}{2} \\ = \frac{390}{2} \\ = \scriptsize 195 \)
