Suggested Answer

Well first we need to determine what each choices ( mean, median, mode, interquartile range) means.Mean- average of a set of numbersMedian - middle number of a set of numbersMode- number that appears the most in a set of numbersInterquartile range- find median of set of numbers and separate the set into 3 equal sections total. Subtract the 3rd section from the 1st section. So you can find the range or span of numbers.If you want to build an elevator that can hold a maximum of 1,500 pounds, i think the most important fact you need to know about weight is the average weight that all the people weighs so you can know what to expect
