Finding the median from a table
Code:

SCORE        1  2    3    4  5  6 FREQUENCY    12  11  8  12  7  10
If I have this table of values, and I must find the median, surely there must be a better way than to write it all out like "1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,3 ,3,3,3,3" etc

How do I find the median, mode and mean for this table?

There is an easier way, firstly how many values in total do you have?

Sorry! I didn't post the whole question:

An ordinary dice was rolled 60 times.

The mean will be $\displaystyle \frac{(1\times 12)+(2\times 11)+\dots +(6\times 10)}{60}$

Median will be halfway between the 30th and 31st values in the ordered set

and the Mode will be were frequency is a maximum.
