👋 Hey guys! Today we’re talking about how to calculate the mean and median of a distribution. These are important statistical tools used to describe a set of data. Let’s dive in!

First, let’s talk about the mean. **The mean is the average value in a dataset**. It’s calculated by adding up all the values and dividing by the number of values. 🧮

For example, let’s say you have a dataset of 5 numbers: 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10. To find the mean, you would add up all the numbers (2+4+6+8+10) and then divide by the total number of values (5). The mean would be 6.

Now, let’s talk about the median. **The median is the middle value in a dataset when the values are listed in order.** If there’s an odd number of values, the median is the middle value. If there’s an even number of values, the median is the average of the two middle values. 📈

For example, let’s say you have a dataset of 6 numbers: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11. To find the median, you would list the values in order: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11. Since there’s an even number of values, you would take the average of the two middle values, which are 5 and 7. The median would be 6.

So there you have it! 🎉 The mean and median are both important measures of central tendency in a distribution. Keep practicing, guys! 👨🎓👩🎓
