This means that one event prevents another event from happening. For example, throwing a die once will result in either a one, or a two, or a three, or a four, or a five, or a six – but only one number can be obtained. Therefore throwing a five rules out any other number. In such cases, the rule of addition is used. TO CALCULATE THE PROBABILITY OF EITHER EVENT (A) OR EVENT (B) HAPPENING (WHERE THE EVENTS ARE MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE) For example, what is the probability of throwing either a six or a five on a die?

Find the middle value. If we arrange the following numbers in numerical order, we obtain: 1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 19. The median is 3. 1). Extreme values do not affect the median, and the median value is usually typical of the data. If there is an even number of values, use the mean of the two middle values: 19, 24, 26, 30, 31, 34. The median is (26 + 30)/2 = 28. 8 – there are 13 values below and 13 values above it. MODE The mode is the value which occurs most often in a group. This can be a group of either numbers or categories.
