Place data in ascending order.
Mode = most frequently occurring value
∑ xi
n
µ=
µ = mean value
Σxi = sum of all data values (x1, x2, x3, …)
n = number of data values
Median
Place data in ascending order.
If n is odd, median = central value
If n is even, median = mean of two central values
Standard Deviation
σ='
If two values occur at the maximum frequency the
data set is bimodal.
If three or more values occur at the maximum
frequency the data set is multi-modal.

P (A or B) = probability of either mutually exclusive
event A or B occurring in a trial
PA = probability of event A
Σxi = sum of all data values (x1, x2, x3, …)
n = number of data values
Conditional Probability
Pk = binomial probability of k successes in n trials
p = probability of a success
q = 1 – p = probability of failure
k = number of successes
n = number of trials
