most appropriate measure of central tendency is mode

Highest value is 5

we can divide the data into 2 parts

ery few families had 5 or more children

Data is discrete and has whole number

we can count the number of familes falling in each condition(two or less children) and 5 or more children

measure of central tendency is mode

measure of dispersion is range

WIth histogram we can get frequencies and relative frequencies
