Measures of central tendency are called such because they all find approximately the same “center” of a data set (option B).

### What are measures of central tendency?

A measure of central tendency attempts to describe a data set by determining the central value of the data set. Measures of central tendency are mean, median and mode
Mean is the average of a set of numbers. It is determined by adding the numbers together and dividing it by the total number.
Median can be described as the number that occurs in the middle of a set of numbers that are arranged either in ascending or descending order.
Mode refers to a value that appears most frequently in a data set.
