Estimate the mean, median and range of a set of grouped data and determine the modal class, selecting the statistic most appropriate to the line of enquiry. Compare two or more distributions and make inferences, using the shape of the distributions and measures of average and range. Consider Outliers when calculating the range of a distribution.
