Objective: I know how to solve word problems that involve the mean.
In statistics, mode, median and mean are typical values to represent a pool of numerical observations. They are calculated from the pool of observations.
Mode is the most common value among the given observations. For example, a person who sells ice creams might want to know which flavor is the most popular.
Median is the middle value, dividing the number of data into 2 halves. In other words, 50% of the observations is below the median and 50% of the observations is above the median.
Mean is the average of all the values. For example, a teacher may want to know the average marks of a test in his class.
Rotate to landscape screen format on a mobile phone or small tablet to use the Mathway widget, a free math problem solver that answers your questions with step-by-step explanations.
We hope that the free math worksheets have been helpful. We encourage parents and teachers to select the topics according to the needs of the child. For more difficult questions, the child may be encouraged to work out the problem on a piece of paper before entering the solution. We hope that the kids will also love the fun stuff and puzzles.
