2010 AMC 8 Problems/Problem 4

Problem

What is the sum of the mean, median, and mode of the numbers $2,3,0,3,1,4,0,3$?

$\textbf{(A)}\ 6.5 \qquad\textbf{(B)}\ 7\qquad\textbf{(C)}\ 7.5\qquad\textbf{(D)}\ 8.5\qquad\textbf{(E)}\ 9$

Solution

Putting the numbers in numerical order we get the list $0,0,1,2,3,3,3,4.$ The mode is $3.$ The median is $\frac{2+3}{2}=2.5.$ The average is $\frac{0+0+1+2+3+3+3+4}{8}=\frac{16}{8}=2.$ The sum of all three is $3+2.5+2=\boxed{\textbf{(C)}\ 7.5}$
