Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Step #1  Find the Average. Step #2  Find the Absolute Deviation for each number in the data. Just, how far is it from the Mean?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You seem to be missing the absolute values. This is a MAD, not just a MD.
