Given a set of numbers, the mode is the value that appears most often, the median is the element that lies in the middle when they are arranged in increasing or decreasing order and the mean is the sum of all the elements divided by the number of elements in the set.

Arrange the elements in the given set {2, 5, 19, 3, 7, 9, 8, 7, 2, 3} in increasing order.

{2, 2, 3, 3, 5, 7, 7, 8, 9, 19}

The mode for this set is not unique, it is 2, 3 and 7. The median is the average of 5 and 7 which is 6.

The mean is `(2+ 2+ 3+ 3+ 5+ 7+ 7+ 8+ 9+ 19)/10 = 6.5`

The required mode is 2, 3 and 7; the median is 6 and the mean is 6.5
