Listed below are the salaries, in \$000, for a sample of 15 chief financial officers
in the electronics industry.

\$516.0 \$548.0 \$566.0 \$534.0 \$586.0 \$529.0
546.0 523.0 538.0 523.0 552.0
486.0 558.0 574.0

a. Determine the mean, median, and standard deviation
Mean 542, Median 538, Standard deviation = 1080/14 = 8.78

b. Determine the coefficient of skewness using Pearson's method
3(542 - 538) / 8.78 = 12/8.78 = 1.37

c. Determine the coefficient of skewness using the software method

Need answer to "C".
