am trying to help grand son answer home work question. help! Question is write a set of data in which mean is 15 median is 15 and the modes are 13 and 15. Know I'm over the hill bet please help
for the record, you should respond to my posts here.
now since you know the definitions, i don't suppose any of this will come as a surprise to you
so lets do this.
lets make up some data, for simplicity, we will take 5 values. i will write our values in ascending order, and an unknown x
13, 13, 15, 15, x
now we want:
$\displaystyle \text{Mean } = \frac {13 + 13 + 15 + 15 + x}5 = 15$
now solve for x
can you see why i choose the data like that? do you see why it works?
