# How do you find mean median and mode?

**mean**is the average of a data set. The

**mode**is the most common number in a data set. The

**median**is the middle of the set of numbers.

Just so, how do you calculate mean median and mode?

**Mean**, **median and mode** are together calledthe measures of central tendency. The **mean** is often calledthe **average**. To find the **mean** you take a set of dataand **calculate** the sum of the data, after that you divide thesum by the number of pieces in the set.

**mean**is the average of the numbers. It iseasy to calculate: add up all the numbers, then divide by how manynumbers there are. In other words it is the sum divided by thecount.

In respect to this, how do you find the mode?

The **mode** of a data set is the number that occursmost frequently in the set. To easily **find the mode**, put thenumbers in order from least to greatest and count how many timeseach number occurs. The number that occurs the most is the**mode**! Follow along with this tutorial and **see how to findthe mode** of a set of data.

The **median** is a number in statistics that tellsyou where the middle of a data set is. The **median formula** is{(n + 1) ÷ 2}th, where “n” is the number ofitems in the set and “th” just means the (n)th number.To find the **median**, you must first order the numbers fromsmallest to largest. Then find the middle number.
