Calculate Mean

##### Scene 3 (13s)

Mean

Mean is the most common average that you will come across in every day life. To calculate mean there are 2 steps. + then ÷ Step 1 – add up all the values. Step 2 – Divide the total by the amount of values you have.

##### Scene 4 (31s)

Calculate the mean of the following: -

4, 8, 1, 12, 34, 87, 21, 6

4 + 8 + 1 + 12 + 34 + 87 + 22 + 6 = 174

Add up all the numbers (it doesn’t matter if they are not in order)

##### Scene 5 (49s)

Calculate the mean of the following: -

4 + 8 + 1 + 12 + 34 + 87 + 22 + 6 = 174 174 ÷ 8 = 21.75

Divide the answer by the amount of numbers there are.

##### Scene 6 (1m 5s)

Calculate the mean of the following: -

6, 8, 1, 14, 36, 85, 28, 8

##### Scene 7 (1m 15s)

Calculate the mean of the following: -

6 + 8 + 1 + 14 + 36 + 85 + 28 + 8 = 186 186 ÷ 8 = 23.25

Divide the answer by the amount of numbers there are.

Add up all the numbers (it doesn’t matter if they are not in order)

##### Scene 8 (1m 35s)

Mean Here is how it looks with all of the working out shown.

Calculate the mean of the following: - 4, 8, 1, 12, 34, 87, 21, 6 4+8+1+ 12 + 34 + 87 + 22 +6 = 174 Add up all the numbers (it doesn't matter if they are not in order)

4+8+1+ 12 + 34 + 87 + 22 +6 = 174 174+8 Divide the answer by the amount of numbers there are. = 21.75 The answer is the mean.

##### Scene 10 (2m 6s)

Mode

The mode is the number we see the most. *TIP* Put the numbers in order so you don’t miss any.

##### Scene 11 (2m 17s)

What is the mode of the following:

8, 5, 7, 10, 15, 21, 5, 7, 2, 5

It helps to put the numbers in order. Doing this will help make sure that you don’t miss any.

2, 5, 5, 5, 7, 7, 8, 10, 15, 21

Check that the amount of numbers you have matches the original amount.

##### Scene 12 (2m 43s)

What is the mode of the following:

8, 5, 7, 10, 15, 21, 5, 7, 2, 5

We can now see that there are more 5’s than any other number.

2, 5, 5, 5, 7, 7, 8, 10, 15, 21

Mode = 5

##### Scene 13 (2m 58s)

What is the mode of the following:

2, 7, 2, 2, 4, 7, 3

##### Scene 14 (3m 7s)

What is the mode of the following:

2, 7, 2, 2, 4, 7, 3

We can now see that there are more 2’s than any other number.

2, 2, 2, 3, 4, 7, 7

Mode = 2

Put the numbers in order

##### Scene 15 (3m 23s)

But what if……

Find the mode of 4, 8, 1, 12, 34, 87, 21, 6

##### Scene 16 (3m 34s)

What is the mode of the following: -

4, 8, 1, 12, 34, 87, 21, 6

1, 4, 6, 8, 12, 21, 34, 87

When we put the numbers in order we can see that there are no duplicates of numbers.

The answer to this type of question is that there is no mode

##### Scene 17 (3m 57s)

But what if……

What is the modal shoe size?

Shoe size 5 6 7 8 9 Frequency 2 5 11 4 1

##### Scene 18 (4m 8s)

What is the modal shoe size?

Shoe size 5 6 7 8 9 Frequency 2 5 11 4 1

Frequency is how many there are.

e.g. There are 2 people who wear size 5

If we look along the frequency row, we can see that 11 is the biggest number. This is the mode (most common)

We look above 11 to see which shoe size is the modal shoe size. (modal means the same as mode)

Modal shoe size is size 7

##### Scene 19 (4m 36s)

What is the modal shoe size?

Shoe size 5 6 7 8 9 Frequency 5 18 11 6 12

##### Scene 20 (4m 45s)

What is the modal shoe size?

Shoe size 5 6 7 8 9 Frequency 5 18 11 6 12

If we look along the frequency row, we can see that 18 is the biggest number. This is the mode (most common).

Modal shoe size is size 6

We look above 18 to see which shoe size is the modal shoe size. (modal means the same as mode)

##### Scene 21 (5m 6s)

Mode Here is how it looks with all of the working out shown.

8, It helps to put the numbers in order. Doing this will help make sure that you don't miss any. What is the mode of the following: 7, 8, 10, 15, 21 5, 7, 10, 15, 21, 25 Check that the amount of numbers you have matches the original amount.

What is the mode of the following: 8, 5, 7, 10, 15, 21, 25 We can now see that there are more 5's than any other number. 2, 5, 7, 7, 8, 10, 15, 21 Mode = 5

1, When we put the numbers in order we can see that there are no duplicates of numbers. What is the mode of the following: - 4, 8, 1, 12, 34, 87, 21, 6 6, 8, 12, 21, 34, 87 Answer = no mode 4, The answer to this type of question is that there is no mode

What is the modal shoe Size? Frequency is how many there are. There are 2 people who wear size 5 Shoe size Frequency 5 2 6 5 7 11 8 If we look along the frequency row, we can see that 11 is the biggest number. This is the mode (most common) Modal shoe size is size 7 9 1 We look above 11 to see which shoe size is the modal shoe size. (modal means the same as mode)

Check that the amount of numbers you have matches the original amount.

##### Scene 30 (8m 6s)

What is the median of the following:

We can see that there are 10 numbers. This means there won’t be a single middle number.

1, 4, 6, 8, 12, 21, 34, 87

We need to look at the 2 middle numbers.

We now need to do an + and ÷ and find the mean of these two numbers

##### Scene 31 (8m 27s)

What is the median of the following:

1, 4, 6, 8, 12, 21, 34, 87

We now need to do an + and ÷ and find the mean of these two numbers

8 + 12 ÷ 2 = 10

the median = 10

34, 87 1, We can see that there are 10 numbers. This means there won't be a single middle number. 8, 12, 21, We need to look at the 2 middle numbers. We now need to do an + and + and find the mean of these two numbers

We now need to do an + and + and find the mean of these two numbers 8+12+2=10 the median = 10

##### Scene 36 (10m 24s)

Range

Biggest number take away the smallest number. The range is not an average but is often put with mean, median and mode. This is because it is a helpful way to measure pieces of data, much like mean, median and mode.

##### Scene 37 (10m 41s)
