    I’m going to start the thread for Module 2 Task 3!
    This is what I got, please let me know if you got something different. I think the hardest part of this was finding the Variance and Standard Deviation for me, as it took a series of calculations. Looking at this, it seems that the data are fairly close together, hence the low Standard Deviation.
    Mean: 92
    Median: 92
    Mode: 92
    Variance: 24.4
    Standard Deviation: 4.94
