Find the mean, the median, and mode for the daily attendance.
The museum management needs to tell the staff their work schedule a week in advance. The museum wants to have approximately one staff member for every 150 visitors. How many staff members should be scheduled to work each week? Explain your reasoning.
The mean is the average. The median is the middle number when the data is arranged numerically. The mode is the most common reoccurring number in the set of data.
Find the number of staff workers that can accommodate the largest number of visitors.
For the largest number of visitors (940), there needs to be at least 7 staff members.
With any less, the museum could be under-staffed.
