# Mean can never be a fraction. State whether the statement is true or false.

**Solution:**

Given, Mean can never be a fraction.

We have to determine if the given statement is true or false.

The __mean__ is the average or a calculated central value of a set of numbers and is used to measure the central tendency of the __data__.

Central tendency is the statistical measure that recognizes the entire set of data or distribution through a single value. It provides an exact description of the whole data.

Mean = sum of all observations / number of observations

Example: consider the data 7, 3, 9, 1, 11

Sum of observation = 7 + 3 + 9 + 1 + 11

= 10 + 10 + 11

= 31

Number of observations = 5

Mean = 31/5

Therefore, the mean can be a fraction.
