How to find a mode of this sequence:{5,8,6,4,5,3,5} Can you help me with this problem, because I didn't get it when we did it in class? Thank you. Last edited by skipjack; May 15th, 2019 at 02:15 PM.

The "median" is the "middle" value in the list of numbers. To find the median, your numbers have to be listed in numerical order from smallest to largest, so you may have to rewrite your list before you can find the median. as for mode: The "mode" is the value that occurs most often. If no number in the list is repeated, then there is no mode for the list. The mode appears to be: 5 I'll let you work out the median.

To find the median, the data should be arranged in order from least to greatest. If the number of numbers is odd (which is the case for the above problem), the median is the number that is halfway into the ordered list, else the median is the average (i.e. arithmetic mean) of the two middlemost numbers in the ordered list.

Avoid illusions by avoiding the causes of illusion. Then you can understand it.
