what is the difference between the median and the mode for the number of floors?

## Answers

Median is the middle value in a sequence of numbers, so here, that would be number 88. Mode is the value that appears most often. Here, that number would be 88, because it appears 4 times.

This means that the difference between the median and the mode for the number of floors is 88 - 88 = 0. The difference is zero.

The difference between median and mode is 0

Step-by-step explanation:

Given the values of no. of floor

=101,101,88,88, 69, 108,88,88,80 ,69

For finding the median we arrange it in ascending order

i.e. 69,69,80,88,88,88,88,101,101,108

Now since the no. of observations are even so median = ([tex]\frac{10}{2}th[/tex]term +[tex](\frac{10}{2} +1)[/tex] th term) /2

i.e. [tex]\frac{88+88}{2}[/tex]

=[tex]\frac{176}{2}[/tex]

=88

Now mode is the observation having the highest frequency

In the above question 88 has the highest frequency of 4

So mode= 88

So difference between median and mode is 88-88

=0

Median - 88

Mode - 88

Mean - 0

The median is a value or quantity that lies at the midpoint of a frequency of observed quantity, the median of 10 and 1 is 5 the mode of a set of numbers is one of the numbers that occurs most often so in set 5595659 5 is the mode.

So in this case the median is 88 and the mode is 88 the mean is 0
