Step: 1

Among the choices mode is the most appropriate for a data that describes the favorite fruit of grade 7 students.

Correct Answer is : mode

Step: 1

Mean is the sum of the data divided by the number of data items in the data set.

Step: 2

Mean is the most appropriate measure of central tendency that describes the cost of breakfast($).

Correct Answer is : mean

Step: 1

The hourly wages of 5 people are $6.00, $9.50, $9.50, $4.75, $4.50 .

Step: 2

Among the choices mode would be misleading measure for the data that describes the hourly wages of 5 people $6.00, $9.50, $9.50, $4.75, $4.50

Correct Answer is : mode

72, 55, 67, 89, 120, 76

Step: 1

The given data set is 72, 55, 67, 89, 120, 76.

Step: 2

Median is the most appropriate measure for the data listed.

Correct Answer is : median

Step: 1

Range is the difference between the maximum and minimum values of the data set.

Step: 2

Mode is used to find the occurrence of maximum times of a data value.

Step: 3

Mean is a better measure of central tendency if there is no outlier in the data.

Step: 4

27 is the outlier in the data as it is far apart from other values. So, it may skew the central tendency.

Step: 5

As the outlier influences the mean, the median is the better measure of the central tendency.

Correct Answer is : Median

27, 28, 30, 32, 29, 34, 31, 33, 35

Step: 1

Mean is a better measure of central tendency if there is no outlier in the data.

Step: 2

There is no outlier in the given data.

Step: 3

So, mean is the most appropriate measure of central tendency for the given data.

Correct Answer is : Mean

Step: 1

Mode is the best method to describe the central tendency of non-numerical data.

Step: 2

Here the data is non-numerical.

Step: 3

So, the measure of central tendency that is the best for the given situation is Mode.

Correct Answer is : Mode

Step: 1

Mode is the best method to describe the central tendency of non-numerical data.

Step: 2

Here the data is non-numerical.

Step: 3

So, the measure of central tendency that is the best for the given situation is Mode.

Correct Answer is : Mode

A: 85, 81, 91, 96, 97

B: 93, 92, 90, 90, 91

C: 85, 81, 94, 93, 90

D: 85, 89, 90, 90, 90

Step: 1

Mode does not exist for Team A.

Step: 2

90, 90, 91, 92, 93

[Ordered list of Team B.]

Step: 3

Median of Team B is 91.

[Middle score in the ordered list.]

Step: 4

81, 85, 90, 93, 94

[Ordered list of Team C.]

Step: 5

Median of Team C is 90.

[Middle score in the ordered list.]

Step: 6

Mean of Team D = 8 5 + 8 9 + 9 0 + 9 0 + 9 0 5 = 88.8

Step: 7

Average 90 is obtained by taking median for team C scores.

Step: 8

So among the choices, Team C used median is true.

Correct Answer is : Team C used median

Step: 1

Mean is the best measure of central tendency when there is no outlier in the data set.

Step: 2

So, mean is the appropriate measure of central tendency for a data that describes the time spent by the students in watching TV.

Correct Answer is : mean

Step: 1

Mode is the best method to describe the central tendency of non-numerical data.

Step: 2

Here the data is non-numerical.

Step: 3

So, the measure of central tendency that is the best for the given situation is Mode.

Correct Answer is : mode
