#### Question

The run scored in a cricket match by 11 players is as follows:

6, 15, 120, 50, 100, 80, 10, 15, 8, 10, 15

Find the mean, mode and median of this data. Are the three same?

#### Solution

The runs scored by 11 players are

6, 15, 120, 50, 100, 80, 10, 15, 8, 10, 15

Arranging these scores in an ascending order,

6, 8, 10, 10, 15, 15, 15, 50, 80, 100, 120

Mean = `(6+8 + 10+10+15+15+15+50+80+100+120)/11`

= `429/11 = 39`

Mode of a given data is that value of observation which occurs for the most number of times and the median of the given data is the middle observation when the data is arranged in an ascending or descending order.

As there are 11 terms in the given data, therefore, the median of this data will be the 6th observation.

Median = 15

Also, it can be observed that 15 occurs 3 times (i.e., maximum number of times).

Therefore, mode of this data = 15

No, these three are not same.
