The Ogive is constructed by plotting a point corresponding to the cumulative frequency, cumulative relative frequency, or cumulative percent frequency and each upper class limit. Because of the gaps that occur between adjacent classes, the midpoints of the upper limit of one class Median -the midpoint of a distribution; the number such that half the observations are smaller and the other half are larger. Calculating a Sample Median 1. Arrange the n data values from smallest to largest. 2. If n is odd, the median is the middle number. a.

Bimodal-2 modes Multimodal-more than 2 modes (no modes) Percentiles-values of the variable that divide a set of ranked data into 100 equal subsets; each set of data has 99 percentiles. The pth percentile separates approximately the left p% from the right (100-p)% of the ranked data.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
