###### Challenge Problem:

Read the word problem and calculate the mean, median, mode and range of the data given.

###### Challenge Data:

Suzie is a dog walker. Sunday is her busiest day and walks dogs of all sizes. She decided to weigh each dog and the results are as follows:

18 lb., 43 lb., 12 lb., 17 lb., 102 lb., 18 lb., 30 lb., 36 lb., 21 lb.

What is the mean, median, mode, and range of the weights?

###### Guiding Questions:

-Review vocabulary terms: Mean/Average, Median, Mode, Range.

-What is the first thing you should do with your data before you start your calculations? Sort the data!

-How do you find or calculate each of them?

Sort: 12, 17, 18, 18, 21, 30, 36, 43, 102

Mode: 18 lb.
Median: 21 lb.
Range: 90 lb. (102 lb-12 lb)
Mean/Average: 33 lb (12+17+18+18+21+30+36+43+102=297; 297/9=33) ## Absent Students:
