What is the mathematica process for finding mean? | Add the numbers in the set and divide by the number of addends. Example Set: 2,5,5,6,7,First ADD 2+5+5+6+7=25, then DIVIDE 25 divided by 5 = 5. The MEAN is 5. |

How would you find the mode for a set of numbers? | Find the number that is repeated the most in the set of numbers. Example: 26, 37, 41, 29, 26, 40. Since 26 is listed more than all the other numbers. 26 is the MODE. |

What is the mathematica process for finding range? | Find the largest number in the set and subtract the smalles number. The answer will be the range.Example: 26, 37, 41, 29. Largest number is 29 - 26 smallest number = the range 3. The RANGE is 3. |

How would you find the median for a set of numbers? | The median is the middle number, so list the numbers in order by value (least to greatest) and the middle number will be the median. Example set: 4, 6, 8, 9, 15. MEDIAN is 8. |
