this question asked from the mean median mode. We know the mean is equal to the number. The sum of all the total numbers, divided by how many numbers that are so add up. Each of the numbers divide by five because there's five numbers and we got 105 Next, we know we're looking from a median, which is the number of the middle. The number in the middle is 98. There's two numbers below in two numbers above 98. Now we're looking for the mode, which is the number that occurs the most often we know 98 occurs the most often, therefore it's the mode. And then we know the the best measure of central tendency would be the median and the reason why? Because we have an outlier, which is 134.
