## How to Find the Mean, Median, Mode, and Range

Which one are you trying to find?

The $mean=amount of numberssum of numbers $

__mean__is the average of a group of numbers.Finding the

__mean__is like summarizing the__mean__ing of a movie, which takes every part of the movie into account.### Step 1. Add all of the numbers together

### Step 2. Divide the sum by the amount of numbers to get the average/mean.

## Finding the Mean

You know how a plot summary summarizes the

__mean__ing of a movie, covering each part of the movie?**Plot Summary**: Aspiring musician Miguel, confronted with his family's ban on music, finds himself in the Land of the Dead looking for his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer, and his true family history.

__mean__summarizes a set of numbers, where each number is part of the summary.

To find the

$mean=amount of numberssum of numbers $Let’s try this out with a couple example problems where we calculate the mean!__mean__, we add up all the numbers and then divide by the amount of numbers. This is also called the average.PRACTICE

— Finding the Median

## Finding the Median

The

__med__ian is the middle number in a set of numbers when they are in order. It's like skipping straight to the__mid__dle or halfway point of a movie.#### Halfway point: 1 hour

__med__ian by first ordering the numbers from least to greatest.

If there are an odd number of numbers, then the

__med__ian is the number that appears in the__mid__dle.There should be an equal amount of numbers before and after it.

If there are an even number of numbers, then the
