Statistics is a large field of study. A small part of that deals with descriptive statistics, which can be used to show a central tendency when summarizing hundreds of pieces of data. Learn how to figure the mean, mode, and median which can be used to find a central tendency. You will also learn about range and how it is calculated to find the variation in the sample.
