On Friday I set this puzzle….
I am thinking of four numbers. The mode is 1, the median is 2 and the mean is 3. What are the numbers?
If you have not tried to solve it, have a go now. For everyone else the answer is after the break….
The numbers are 1,1, 3 and 7. That way, the mode (most common) =1, the mean (average) is 3 and the median (the middle number when ordered) = 2. Did you solve it? Any other answers?
