The mean best describes the data set because the data set has no outlier. The mean is the average of the data:$\frac{39+52+41+44+47+36+51+44+50+40+53+46+44+35}{14}$=44.4 The median is the middle value. The middle values are 44 and 44 : (44+44)/2=44 The mode is the number that occurs most frequently:44 occurs thrice so it is the mode The range is the difference between the minimum and the maximum:53-35=18.The range is 18
