I only got 8 :( Think one of the ones I got wrong was the mode, median etc one. Never could remember the difference between them.

so if i could pass this (10/10), does that mean i get to be an engineer too, sock?

sure. you can be certified by the sock school of engineering. what kind of engineer do you want to be so we can send you your diploma/air freshener?

fence: think that was the one i got wrong too. never ever could remember the difference, which is odd, because normally i'm good with words...i must have just selectively blanked it out in like 6th grade & that was that, forever.

hey sock: for just one saltine (& the tequila of course) could you enlighten us on the mean-median-mode thang?

i want to be a space engineer. no idea what sort of air freshener is appropriate, i will leave that to the institute of sock.

i'm not sure exaclty why i remember this (and not to sound like too much like a lecturer) - but median is middle and mode is most - so, the mode is anything that shows up the most and median is the middle value(if there is an even number of numbers then the two middlest are averaged)

i always forget mean though, that just another word for average (i looked it up)

i always remember "median" as middle because i endeavor not to drive over the median and muck up my car-type-thing.

"mode" as what's fashionable, so cookie cutter.

heh.
i'm farging hopeless in math.
