Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here's a useful link: http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/meandeviation.html If you do the calculations, you will be able to do them by yourself in your next test.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0steps: 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.
