Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well 30 is definitely the outlier, so its not B. the way to solve this is to add all the numbers together (without adding 30) and then dividing the answer by 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because instead of dividing it by 10 when we were adding 30, we'll be dividing by only 9 so the answer will be greater
