    Look at the given numbers, which two teams have the mean and MAD very close to each other?

    Mean Absolute Deviation is MAD. If the prob mentions MAD, it should have been covered in ur class right?

    You really should because u are supposed to learn something :) Luckily for this prob. u dont need to understand what MAD is, u can do just by comparing the values.

    Arrows 45.6 7.9 Coyotes 61.2 8.2 Panthers 50.7 8.3 Volcanoes 59.8 8.0 So just look at the two numbers for each team and pick the pair that are the closest...
