Real life examples that include the mode, median, and the mean

- Think about how statistics often is concerned with estimating the center of a distribution by using the mean, median, and sometimes the mode. - Bring to mind a real-world example in which one measure of central tendency provides useful information for the example while another measure of central tendency provides meaningles
