Measures of central tendency

Measures of central tendency are the mean, mode, median, and standard deviation of a set of data. Find some lessons and calculator below

The mean is the sums of the values in the set divided by the number of items in the set

There is basically no difference between the mean and the average.

In statistics, the term 'mean' is used instead of 'average'

The mean for 2, 4, and 6 is (2 + 4 + 6)/3 = 12/3 = 4
