Mean, Median, Mode

In skewed distributions we are often asked which one is higher.

Here's a tip
follow them alphabetically
i.e.
Mean Median Mode

The mean being nearest to the tail. so in positively skewed curves the mean is highest and in negatively skewed curves the mean is lowest, in both cases it's nearest to the tail followed by median followed by mode.
