This recipe helps you find mean and median of a column in R

## Recipe Objective

Exploratory Data Analysis is a crucial step before building any machine learning model on a dataset. This also includes gathering statistical inferences from the data. There are a few main terms in stats which describes the variability of the numeric variable. These include IQR, quartiles, quantiles, mean and median. They help us to detect any outliers in the column and the distribution of the column.

This recipe focuses on finding mean and median of a column.

Mean and median gives the central tendency of the data. Mean is just the average of the values in the column divided by the total number of observations. Median is the value in the column which divides the dataset into two equal halves (i.e. the middle value).

``` # Data manipulation package library(tidyverse) ​ # reading a dataset customer_seg = read.csv('R_68_Mall_Customers.csv') ​ glimpse(customer_seg) ```
```Rows: 200
Columns: 5
\$ CustomerID              1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 1...
\$ Gender                  Male, Male, Female, Female, Female, Female, ...
\$ Age                     19, 21, 20, 23, 31, 22, 35, 23, 64, 30, 67, ...
\$ Annual.Income..k..      15, 15, 16, 16, 17, 17, 18, 18, 19, 19, 19, ...
\$ Spending.Score..1.100.  39, 81, 6, 77, 40, 76, 6, 94, 3, 72, 14, 99,...
```

Dataset description: It is the basic data about the customers going to the supermarket mall. The variable that we interested in is Annual.Income which is in 1000s

## Step 2: Calculating mean

We use the mean() function to calculate the mean of the column

``` mean(customer_seg\$Annual.Income..k..) ```
```60.56
```

## Step 3: Calculating median

We use the median() function to calculate the median of the column

``` median(customer_seg\$Annual.Income..k..) ```
```61.5
```

## Step 4: Calculating median and mean together

We use the summary() function to calculate the mean, median and other statistical terms of the column

``` summary(customer_seg\$Annual.Income..k..) ```
```   Min. 1st Qu.  Median    Mean 3rd Qu.    Max.
15.00   41.50   61.50   60.56   78.00  137.00
```
