Averages Homework Challenge

Can you find all the different sets of five positive whole numbers that satisfy these conditions?

Mean = 4
Median = 3
Mode = 3

Can you convince me you have found them all?


If I also tell you that the range is 10, can you identify my numbers.

Well done Hayden, Chris, you've mode and median correct, well done - but the mean doesn't work; what would it need to add up to for a mean of 4? (just change the 5 maybe)
