#### Question 1:

The sizes of shirts sold in a shop are as follows:

36, 38, 30, 40, 34, 42, 30, 46, 40, 38, 34, 40, 38, 40, 42, 30, 40, 38, 44, 40, 32, 40, 32, 44, 38

Compute the mean, median and mode. Among these, which is the most important one for the seller? Discuss.

#### Answer:

Mean of the given data =

=

= 37.84

By arranging the given data in ascending order, we have:

30, 30, 30, 32, 32, 34, 34, 36, 38, 38, 38, 38, 38, 40, 40, 40, 40, 40, 40, 40, 42, 42, 44, 44, 46

Median of a data is the middle observation of the data.

∴ Median of the given data = 13^{th} observation = 38

The observation which is repeated most is the mode of the data.

In the given data, the observation 40 is repeated 7 times.

∴ Mode of the given data = 40

As the sale of a seller depends on the demand of the product therefore, the size of the shirt which is mostly sold is most important for the seller as his sale for that particular size of shirt is more than the other sizes.

Thus, mode is most important for the seller.
