Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Welcome to openstudy by the way. Outliers are numbers that are too far off from the others. I think they are all relatively close, so your answer is no.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, so if i were trying to find the range of a set of data. Heres the data: 1,2,2,3,5,12. To find the range, i subtract the highest, from the lowest. But the number 12 pulls it WAY too far up. 12 is an example of an outlier. To get a fair range, we must remove the 12.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yep. Outlier is just a number that is too far off from the others. Your set of data does not have any outlier.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so what would we do with the outlier? Would we use the 5 instead to find the range?
