Contributor: Briana Pincherri. Lesson ID: 11289

Finding the MEDIAN doesn't MEAN you have to go into "math is too hard" MODE. With some video help and a wide RANGE of practice problems you'll even be able to find a missing value given just the mean!

• Can you tackle some mean problems with a smile on your face?

Let's find out in this lesson, with practice problems on mean, median, and mode!

To get started, let's do a quick review of mean, median, and mode.

What better way than with an example?

Find the mean, median, and mode for this set of data:

7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 6, 8, 9, 11, 10.

If you need a quick reminder of these terms, here it is:

Mean

• the average — Add all the numbers in a set and divide by the total numbers in the set.

Median

• Find the middle number when the numbers are listed from least to greatest. (HINT: If there are two middle numbers, add them together and divide by 2.)

Mode

• the number that appears the most in the set

And why not throw in an extra?

Range

• the highest number in the set minus the smallest number in the set
