Stats 401 Week 2 Relative frequency = How many times appeared in category ÷ Total items in category (like finding percent without multiplying by 100 at the end) For the median, if there is an even amount of number given then add the two middle terms then divide by 2. EX: 1 2 3 4 5 6. The two middle terms are 3 and 4 so 3 + 4 = 7. Then 7/2 = 3.5 (finding the average of those numbers). If there isn’t a mode (1 2 3 4 5 6) then write “NO MODE” not “The mode is zero” because that implies that there is the number 0 and that is what appears the most. Peak of curve is in the middle When the mean = median = mode the distribution is bell shaped or symmetric. Median > mean then it is left skewed Med
