Upper Canyon: 2 3 1 1 3 4 6 9 3 1 3 Mean: 3.72 First, add all numbers (36). Then, divide by the amount of numbers we have (11) 36 11 3.27 Median: 3 First, put all the numbers in order. Then, find the middle number (or the average of the two middle numbers) Mode: 3 Find the number that is listed the most Section 3.2 # 5 {p. 95}
