Assign 1-1 Ch-3 1. Mean = 15 Median = 16 5. 9. In this case I think median gives a better measurement of the central location because the mean is  higher due to some really high values. 85 th  Percentile is a little less than 15593 (86.95 percentile). When you look at parts of the data  and when you compare 15593 to 5052, 15593 looks like a high number. Whereas compared to  the highest number in the data, it looks very low. The percentile gives us an idea of how the data  is spread out. 11.   City Highwa y Mean 15.6 18.9 Median 15.9 18.7 Mean 159.05 Median 161 Mode 167 First  Quartile 137.75 Third  Quartile 168.5 Mean 10815.08 Median 8296 First  Quartile 5984 Third  Quartile 14330

Assign 1-1 Mode 15.3 19.4 The data shows that an average vehicle will give about 15.6 mgp on city and 18.9 on a highway.  However, the Mode is telling us that there are more vehicles that give 19.4 on highway. An Ideal  car in this case would give 16.8 in city and 21.1 on highway. Since many cars have been able to  give 19.4 on highway that should be a standard for the highway mpg. The Standard in City  should be around 15.6 to 15.9 because mean and median is very close.  13. 10,12,16,17,20 Range = 20-10 = 10  Inter-Quartile = Q3 – Q1 = 3.75-1.75 = 2 Q3 = (75/100)*5 = 3.75 Q1 = (25/100)*5 = 1.75
