This chapter converts the classical central tendency measures to their fuzzy cases. Fuzzy mean, fuzzy mode and fuzzy median are explained by numerical examples. Fuzzy frequency distribution is another subtitle of this chapter. Classical graphical illustrations are examined under fuzziness. A numerical example for each central tendency measure is given.
