Answer

The mean flight time is 266 minutes. The median flight time is 266 minutes. The mode flight time is 260 minutes.

Work Step by Step

The data in ascending order: 257, 260, 260, 266, 267, 270, 282. The mean: $\frac{257+260+260+266+267+270+282}{7}=266$ There are 7 values. So, the median is the 4th value: 266. The mode flight time is 260 because it appears twice and the others only appear once.
