I justify it that both median and mode coincide, so they have priority over the mean. Another explanation could be adding the set of three numbers in the middle: 174 + 183 + 183 = 540/3 = 180. From this we see that the number 180 is closer to 183 than 176 is to 183. So, this should prove that the median is more useful. 8.2
