What do you think the outliers are?

- anonymous

Outliers are 15 and 35

- anonymous

The mean remains the same would be the answer right?

- farawayfaith

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

Thanks!! Mind helping me with one more? :D

Median; 4
Mean; 2
Mean; 4

- farawayfaith

Yep the mean remains the same 25 :)

- anonymous

0 l 24 l (one) l 4 l 5 l 2 l 5 l 4 l

- anonymous

Mind helping me with that?

- farawayfaith

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

- anonymous

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

- farawayfaith

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

- anonymous

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

- farawayfaith

I think so

- anonymous

Thanks :)

- farawayfaith

No problem :)
