The mean is the average. To find that you add them all up and divide the number you get by the number of numbers in the set. So in this case,
3+4+8=15
153=5
So the mean is 5.
The median is the middle number in a set. So you have to arrange them into numerical order.
3, 8, 4 becomes 3, 4, 8. The middle number is 4, so the median is 4.
Summary:
Mean- 5
Median -4

Explanation:
given observations are 3,8,4
MEAN:
x=3+8+43=153=5
mean = 5
MEDIAN:
first we have to arrange the terms in ascending order
3,4, 8
if there are n terms then median is
(n2)th term if n=even, [n+12]th term if n=odd
here n=3 odd
median = 4

A study in Sweden looked at former elite soccer players, people who had played soccer but not at the elite level, and people of the same age who did not play soccer. Here is a two-way table that classifies these individuals by whether or not they had arthritis of the hip or knee by their mid-50s.

 Elite  Non-elite Did not play  Total  Yes 1092443 No 61206548815 Total 71215572858
Suppose we choose one of these players at random. What is the probability that the player has arthritis, given that he or she was classified as an elite soccer player?
