This is the third part of a question and I have no idea how to do it!! If you need any other info from the rest of question/ the original question - I'll give it

How many days does the mean of 21 apply to? So how many hours were spent in total during that period?

i literally did 21 - 42 = 16.8 minutes before posting the question but I didn't think that was the answer cause it seems too simple?

mean of 21 minutes applies to "the time he spends per day surfing the internet for the first three weeks of May. The times given to the nearest minute are as follows:

0 0 0 5 10 12 13 15 16 16 17 18 21 24 26 26 32 35 61 73 "

You've only posted 20 numbers so can you check that.

You can do this question without the extra info. but it's best that you give all the information.

"George records the time he spends per day surfing the internet for the first three weeks of May. The times, given to the nearest minute area as follows:

0 26 13 5 18 12 35 24 61 16 10 26 15 0 0 73 21 17 16 42 32

i) find the mode, median, and mean, commenting on their relative usefulness as measure of central tendency for this data set (5 mks)

ii) Calculate the standard deviation (3 mks)

iii) George's dad claims that he is spending too much time on the internet. He tells George to reduce his usage so that the mean daily time for May is 20% less than the current mean.

Firstly, your mean is wrong. Start by correcting that.

Then take 20% off this mean. This will give you the preferred mean over the full 31 days.

Then e.g. if the mean over 31 days was 15 then the total over these 31 days is 31 x 15.

You can use this to find the total over the last ten days.

Again, post all your working/ideas if you get stuck.
