## Frequently Asked Questions

### What is a Mean, Median, Mode, and Range Calculator?

A Mean, Median, Mode, and Range Calculator is a tool used to calculate the central tendency and dispersion of a numerical data set. It provides the mean (average), median (middle value), mode (most frequent value), and range (difference between the maximum and minimum values).

### How do I use this calculator?

To use this calculator, enter your numerical data set in the provided text area and click "Calculate". The calculator will compute the mean, median, mode, and range and display the result.

### What data formats are supported?

This calculator supports data sets entered as a list of numbers separated by spaces, commas, or both. For example, "1,2,3,4,5,6", "1 2 3 4 5 6", and "1, 2 3 ,4 5, 6" are all valid entries.

### What is the mean?

The mean is the average of a data set, calculated by dividing the sum of all values by the number of values.

### What is the median?

The median is the middle value of a data set when the values are arranged in ascending or descending order. If the data set has an even number of values, the median is the average of the two middle values.

### What is the mode?

The mode is the value that appears most frequently in a data set. A data set may have one mode, more than one mode, or no mode at all.

### What is the range?

The range is the difference between the maximum and minimum values in a data set. It provides a measure of how spread out the values are.

### Why are these statistics important?

These statistics are important because they provide insights into the central tendency and dispersion of a data set. They help in understanding the distribution and variability of the data, which is essential for data analysis and decision-making.
