yep that's the mean but not the mean absolute deviation
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what you do next is subtract the mean from each data value then apply absolute value bars like this... |48 - 45.5| = 2.5 |43 - 45.5| = 2.5 |42 - 45.5| = 3.5 |49 - 45.5| = 3.5 |50 - 45.5| = 4.5 |41 - 45.5| = 4.5

  • jim_thompson5910
correct, then you average those results (add them up, then divide by 6)

  • jim_thompson5910
yep 2.5 + 2.5 + 3.5 + 3.5 + 4.5 + 4.5 = 21 21/6 = 3.5
