all right, So for number 20 we're talking about the adamant and the teachers again with E three admin that have the $90,000 salaries. And then the majority of the teachers have a salary of 45,000. But the question ships, which of the three measures would a union member 18 years? So if you're a teacher, union member and you're trying to talk to your admin or your superintendent or your board about possibly getting higher salaries, you're going to use the mode as your answer as a mode happens to be the 45,000 and that's what shows up the most.

So you would want to say the mode because it was lowest salary. And as a union member, you're trying to fight for your teachers to yet more salaries, higher salaries rather, um, and so that's why that wouldn't be the indication that you would want to use
