Candy box quality control


Suppose a candy manufacturer is spot checking batches of units of candy boxes daily in samples of size 100 for an entire month. The manufacturer is looking to identify misprints on the box label (an ongoing issue at the company). The distribution of # of misprinted per 100 sampled is shown in the table below:

# of misprinted frequency
0 15
1 5
6 1
25 1

Given this information, what is the mean, median, and mode for this distribution? Additionally, which of the three measures is the most representative for the distribution and why?
