Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the first thing to help us out is to order it, and how do we determine the value of a mean and median?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1also, consider that outliers affect the mean .... so 2 options are just not valid to start with

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1adding up, and dividing is how we find the mean and just picking the number i the middle of an ordered set is how we can determine the median

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it should yes. so that narrows our options

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the question is really, how does it affect the median. wht is our ordered set?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in elementary school grades they teach you how to determine if one number is bigger or smaller than another. .... just order the numbers from smallest to biggest.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yep, now adding on the 42, what does the middle become? 11 , 12 , 13 , 14 , 14 , 16 , 19 , 21, 42

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.111 , 12 , 13 , 14 , 14 , 16 , 19 , 21, 42 >>>>>>>>>>< <<<<<<<<<< yep, still 14 so the median doesnt change, but the mean does

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lets read them A. The mean and median are not affected. ^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^ false B. The mean and median both increase by 3. ^^^^^^^^^^^ false C. The mean increases by 3, but the median stays the same. ^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ true enough D. The median increases by 3, but the mean stays the same. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ false
