$90,000 salary. But then the majority of Teacherssalaries was this 45,000. So if you think about, there's definitely way more teachers and there are admin. So if you add Apple of their salaries and then you divide by the number of employees, both teacher and and been, that's what's gonna get you. Your mean, your median would be whatever is in the middle, and then the modes, whatever happens the most. So if I was a board member, which one of these three measures would I use to be talking about salaries and which toe building? To try and entice someone to come or to be, uh, working at this place? Or to be able to say, Well, these people are making a niece amount of money and the answer would be the meat, because, I mean, if I add up all of those numbers, all those salaries at that one would be the highest of the three. As as a board member, you want to have the highest salary number you can train to promote, potentially getting someone to hire to be hired
