were suitable for me then I would go with the median. The middle price point often tends to be what I would need. I need something more than the low cost model which generally does not have all of the options and software that I need. The expensive ones tend to be super loaded with excessive software and gadgets intended more for video game players. The middle cost option is usually what works best for me. With the candy bars, all the costs are fairly comparable so the mode method is what I would look at. I would weigh all my options at the same price and decide which one I felt like eating. That is the one I would purchase. This is a link to my first graph. I think this one is a poor representation of information. The purpose of the graph is to show that the cost of higher education is going up however the income benefit from the education is not. The information is not an accurate example because most high paying jobs will not even consider putting an employee into a position without the education to back them up. Although the cost of the 4 year degree seems like a lot in such a short time span the education will actually last a lifetime. If the degree is obtained at 40 years old (which is the age I will be when I get mine) and the total cost is $40,000 to earn that degree, the average cost per year of that degree is 41,600 per year if I were to work until the age of 65. $40,000 / 25 years = $1,600 per year.
