    @ajanijones Do you know how to calculate mean absolute deviation (MSD)?

    Here's a useful link: http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/mean-deviation.html If you do the calculations, you will be able to do them by yourself in your next test.

    steps: 1. Find the mean of the dataset 2. Find the absolute difference from the mean (i.e. always positive) 3. Add the differences and divide by the number of values in the dataset. This is the mean absolute difference.

    Read through the link, and follow the instructions I gave earlier. Find the value of the MAD and then compare with the available choices.
