Inspect each data set. Without making a calculation , decide if each statement about the data set is true or false. Explain how you decided.

  1. True or False: "The set of and has a mean of ."

    Do you think the mean can be greater than all pieces of data?

  2. True or False: "The set of and has no mode."

    True. Make sure to explain your reasoning!

  3. True or False: " is the median of this data set: and ."

    Be sure to check that the number set is in numerical order (from least to greatest)!

  4. True or False: " is the mode of because it has the greatest value."

    Refer to the definition of mode in part (b) and make sure to check your work!

    False. Can you explain why?
