# Measures of Central Tendency

#### description

• Mean , Median , Mode
• Quartile , Inter quartile

#### notes

The three measures of central tendency for ungrouped data are :
The mean (or average) of a number of observations is the sum of the values of all the observations divided by the total number of observations.
So, bar x =
(sum_(i=1)^n x_i)/ n.

For an ungrouped frequency distribution, it is bar x = (sum_(i=1)^n f_ix_i)/(sum_(i=1)^n f_i)

The median is that value of the given number of observations, which divides it into exactly two parts.
If n is an odd number, the median = value of the ((n + 1)/2)^(th) observation.
If n is an even number, median = Mean of the values of the (n/2)^(th) and (n/2 + 1)^(th) observation.

The mode is that value of the observation which occurs most frequently, i.e., an observation with the maximum frequency is called the mode.
