This output must contain the following values: mean, standard error, median, mode, standard deviation, sample variance, kurtosis, skewness, range, minimum, maximum, sum, and count.Next, begin writing your paper by reporting your results for each of the values listed above.Include the data set, the output from the analysis, and the answers to the following questions:Evaluate the measures of central tendency. Address the following when completing this component:Which measure of central tendency is most appropriate based on the data type?Are the mean, median, and mode close to the same value? If not, what does this tell you about the numbers in the set?Identify any mode(s) in the data set. Is there a mode at all? Is there more than one mode?Calculate manually the interquartile range and the values of Q1 and Q3. (It is important to calculate this manually because the interquartile range and quartiles output from Calculator Soup might not be accurate.)
