# A.1.11.2 Describing Data Distributions

The following data display and written statement are matched up. Look at the display and read through the statements and then describe why you think they are matched. Next, tell wether the mean or median is a more appropriate for describing the center and why, then estimate that measure of center. Written Description:

• Skewed right
• IQR: 11
