### What is the mean, median and mode?

The mean, median, and mode are the three most commonly used measures of central tendency for populations that do not have much data, that is, they do not need to be grouped.
The mean, also known as average, is the value obtained by dividing the sum of a cluster of numbers by the number of them.
When arranging the numbers from least to largest, the median sits exactly in the middle of the values that are above. The median is a set that is a value that is in the middle of the other values.
The number that appears most frequently in a set of numbers is called the mode.
So, The median will help Emily to find the number that appears in the middle of the 25 numbers that are arranged in ascending order.
