This looks a really easy question but i dont actually know the answer. Could someone please tell me how i work it out
The five number summary for the weights (in pounds) of fish caught in a bass tournament is:
Would you expect the mean weight of all the fish caught to be higher or lower than the median? Explain
In other words 50 percent of the scores will be above the median and the remaining 50 percent below it.
finding the mean value for the above data given as follows:
Here I am calculating the mean by Calculating the mean from frequency distribution.
Class interval :1-3 ;Mid Value(x):2 Frequency(f):4(2.3,2.8,3.0,3.3);fx=8
Class interval:4-6 ; Mid value(x):5 :
fx = 8+5=13
Mean value=summation fx /summation f = 13/5 = 2.6
and the median for this data 2.3,2.8,3,3.3,4.5=3
Therefore, here the mean is less than the median.
