    well its a simply task to find the mean of the scores without the outlier of 50... New mean = sum of the score/9 and then compare it

    All you have to do is add 74, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 80, 82, 84 together then divide by how many numbers so 9 then you get you mean and can answer your question :)
