For 1 month, two doctors in a medical office counted the number of patients they saw each day. The mean and MAD for each doctor were calculated and recorded in a table. What conclusion can be drawn, based upon the value of the means-to-MAD ratio? Doctor Mean MAD Hartmann 15.3 0.9 Kim 18.9 1.1 A. Dr. Hartmann saw more patients per day than Dr. Kim did. B. Dr. Kim saw more patients per day than Dr. Hartmann did. C. Dr. Kim and Dr. Hartmann saw about the same number of patients per day. D. No conclusions can be drawn.

    what numeric value did you get for the means-to-MAD ratio ?

    subtract the means then divide that difference by the larger MAD value

    if the ratio is larger than 2.5, which it is, this means that the distributions are different so that rules out choice C. If they were similar distributions, then choice C would be the answer

    Because The mean is Greater for Kim and so is the MAD.

    yeah the mean is larger for Kim so she takes on more patients
