**Mean, Median, Mode, and Range**

The "mean" is the "average" you're used to, where you add up

all the numbers and then divide by the number of numbers. The

"median" is the "middle" value in the list of numbers. To find the

median, your numbers have to be listed in numerical order, so

you may have to rewrite your list first. The "mode" is the value

that occurs most often. If no number is repeated, then there is

no mode for the list

The "range" is just the difference between the largest and

smallest values.

example

The chart above shows four different types of averages.

As you can see each one gives a different answer.
