    Which of the choices below best describes how to measure the center of this data? a. Both centers are best described with the mean. b. Both centers are best described with the median. c. The Rome data center is best described by the mean. The New York data center is best described by the median. d. The Rome data center is best described by the median. The New York data center is best described by the mean. I think it's B, but somebody on another post said they got that wrong. I don't know what else it would be?

    Both of the graphs are skewed to the right, so they would both be better measured by the median, right? Cause outliers affect the mean, not really the median.

    Yes, you are correct it is B because the median is the center of the data. It can't be the mean because that is the average.
