So confused with maths assessment 2. Im already a week behind with it just feel like giving up!

Basically i have 50 participants ages ranging from 1-16. Shoe sizes range from childrens 3 to adults 9. How do i do my range, mean, median and and mode when the sizes arent as simple as going from 1-9 the childrens go up to size 13 before going onto bigger sizes from 1, so then what??

Feeling really down about all this now :( Just feel i have repeated myself over an over with the questions leading up to this part too!Aaargh!

Thanks for any help

Hi Stef

To overcome this problem I converted my shoe sizes from UK to continental sizes. It was much easier to work out my range and averages afterwards.

Hope this helps
