Activity 1: Measures of Central Tendency
“What is a typical value for the data set?”
Use this lesson to learn how measures of central tendency, also known as measures of location, can provide an answer to the question.
The three most common measures of central tendency are the mean, median, and mode. In addition to finding these measures, you will learn to choose the measure that is most appropriate in a given situation.
