    Mean, Median or Mode question

    7. Suppose you own a hat shop and decide to order hats in only one size for the coming season. To decide which size to order, you look at last year’s sales figures, which are itemized according to size. Should you fine the mean, median, or mode for the data? Why?

    I am thinking mode because that would show the most sizes sold. Since mode is the number with the most frequency.

    Am I on the right track?

    Thank you in advance.
