Excel & Statistics 44: Skew & SKEW function

Learn how to use the SKEW function to calculate the skew in a distribution of data. Standard deviation will tell us how fairly our mean represents our data points, but the skew will tell us the bend or title in the distribution which in turn will tell us the relationship between our mean, median and mode:
1) Skew left or negative, mean less than median less than mode
2) Skew right or positive, mean greater than median greater than mode
3) Skew zero, mean equal median equal mode
