Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We already know the MEAN of the data. That's 3. We already added things up and divided by 9. This gave 3, the Mean or Average. We need the Mean Absolute Deviation. Find the total of the absolute deviations. You did that. 10. Now divide by what to get the MEAN absolute deviation?
