The mean would be calculated by adding all the numbers up and dividing by the amount of numbers there are in the set (6 numbers).
1+4+5+6+10+25=51
51 6 = 8.5 This is the mean
Since all the numbers in your set all occur once, there is no mode. If your set had an extra 4 or had three 5's, for example, then it would have a distinct mode.
Line up all the numbers in order from least to greatest. Cross off the lowest number, then the highest, then the second lowest, then the second highest, and so on and so forth. The middle number would be the median. However, since your set has six numbers, two numbers will be left in the middle. When this occurs, take the mean of the two numbers.
You should have crossed off 1, 25, 4, and 10. The average of the two remaining numbers, 5 and 6, is 5.5
Your mean is 8.5, and your median is 5.5
