Data are collected about the amount of time, in minutes, each member of the lacrosse team spends practicing. How does a single outlier change the mean of the collected data?

    I think a single outlier causes the value of the mean to slightly move towards the outlier

    When you have an outlier, you basically have a piece or group of data that is "outside" of the normal group Therefore, when you have the outlier being a higher data, the mean might be higher, but if it is lower, then the mean might be lower as well.
