Here are some math problems for you to solve.

Can you figure out the average (mean) age of the team?

What was its median age?

Can you do the same with the weight of the players?

Average (mean) weight?

Median weight?

And what about the mode? Can you determine that for both the age and the weight?


Here is some help if you need it:

1 – To calculate the average (mean) you need to add all values from the same group and then divide it by the numbers of values you had (so here you add up all 17 values and then divide that number by 17)

2 – To find the median you need to sort all values in order from lowest to highest and then find the one in the middle of that row.

3 – To find the mode, you need to look at your set of values and determine which value is there the most often.
