Give one example of a situation in which
(i) the mean is an appropriate measure of central tendency
When the data does not change much, mean is an appropriate measure of central tendency.
For example -
- Marks of a student in 5 tests
- 7, 6, 6, 7 , 5
- ∴ Mean = (7 + 6 + 6 + 7 + 5)/5 = 31/5 = 6.2
Here 6.2 is an appropriate measure of central tendency
