    Which of the following is true of the data represented by the box plot? box plot with point at 15, min at 17, Q1 at 51, median at 65, Q3 at 74, max at 90 The data is skewed to the bottom and contains one outlier. The data is skewed to the top. The data has a symmetrical distribution and contains no outliers. The mean is most likely greater than the median.

    The data is skewed to the bottom and contains outlier is my guess, but i thought it's skewed at the top?

    When the outliers are removed, how does the mean change? The mean remains the same. The mean decreases by 2. The mean increases by 2. There are no outliers.

    The mean remains the same would be the answer right?

    Exactly so first we're gonna add up all of the numbers and divide them, then we will remove the two outliers, add up the rest of the numbers and divide them Then we can see the difference

    Well which do you think is the more appropriate method mean or median

    Mean, because you wouldn't be able to find the median?

    You could find the median but it wouldn't be as accurate as the mean because we have an outlier of 24 present

    Right, so we'd find the mean. Would the mean; 4?
