1. The mean crash tests of child booster seats for cars with the measurement hic is

703.7 hic.

1. The median crash tests of child booster seats for cars with the measurement hic are 630.5 hic.
2. We know that mode is the value that repeats maximum number of times in the given data set. Therefore, the median crash tests of child booster seats for cars with the measurement hic is none, because no value repeated more than once in the given data set.
3. The midrange crash tests of child booster seats for cars with the measurement hic are 820.5 hic.

Explain: Yes, the results suggest that all child booster seats meet the specified requirement. Since, all the measures of center are less than 1000 hic.
