MODE:
The highest frequency is 6.
Therefore, the mode is size 4.
RANGE:
Range = Maximum value  Minimum value
= 6  3
= 3
The range of the shoe size is 3.
MEDIAN:
There are 15 pieces of data. Median is the value of the data that is in the middle.
3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6
Therefore, the median is size 4.
MEAN:
4 x 3 = 12
6 x 4 = 24
3 x 5 = 15
2 x 6 = 12
\(\text{Mean} = \dfrac{12+24+15+12}{15}\\ \quad\quad\quad=\dfrac{63}{15}\\ \quad\quad\quad=4.2\)
The mean is size 4.2.
