Answer

Average:159.8 million, no mode, median: 95 million, mid range:199.5 million. The only thing that is for sure that the average salary of all celebrities must be less than 159.8 million.

Work Step by Step

The average can be counted by summing all the data and dividing it by the number of data: $\frac{332+302+235+225+100+90+88+84+75+67}{10}=159.8$, the average earning is 159.8 million. The mode is the data occurring the most times but here all data occurs one time, therefore there is no mode. The median is the average of the 1 or 2 (here 2) middle data: (100+90)/2=95, the median is 95 million. The mid range is the average of the highest and the lowest data: (332+67)/2=199.5, the mid range is 199.5 million. The only thing that is for sure that the average salary of all celebrities must be less than 159.8 million.
