Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Exactly :) Would you say it is larger or smaller than the other numbers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yep so what do you think the answer is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Which measure of center is most appropriate for this situation and what is its value? Mean; 3 Mean; 5 Median; 3 Median; 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thats the actual answers, I messed up D:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2That's okay no problem, we just have to figure out the mean and median

farawayfaith

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Do you know how to find the mean?

farawayfaith

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well actually first of all which do you think would be the most appropriate measure of center since there is an outlier?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, internet lagged out.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Finding the mean would be to add up all the numbers then divide by how many numbers there were, right?

farawayfaith

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2That's alright, and yep you're correct

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it would be Mean; 5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you :)) Could you help me with one more?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2But just to check your understanding why do you think we would find the mean instead of the median when an outlier is present?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because it was an odd number of numbers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Which of the following is true of the data set represented by the box plot? box plot with min at 10.5, Q1 at 11.5, median at 12.5, Q3 at 13.5, max at 15 The data contains at least one outlier. The mean and median are most likely the same or very close. The data is skewed to the right.

farawayfaith

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Pretty much and if we used the median it would've been 3 which is pretty low considering we have 19 in there

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The median because the data distribution to the right, but i'm not sure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2This is a confusing question because the data is skewed to the right because of an outlier, so I'm not really sure either :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you have an idea of what it is?

farawayfaith

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Lol well maybe we should try finding the mean and median

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright, i don't know how to find median/mean on these mouse charts though.

farawayfaith

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2We already know the median is 12.5 so let me just figure out how we find the mean

farawayfaith
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Okay it isn't possible to even figure out the mean since we aren't given all the numbers in the data set
