Do you know the formula for MAD? Here it is how it looks like: |dw:1434479283962:dw| It will be a long process... Steps: 1. You already find the mean :) 2. Get the difference of the mean from each value 3. Get the sum of each differences 4. Then divide it by the number of the data set.

so difference = subtracting right? but what do i subtract it (19) with?

  • anonymous
wait, for the mean are you sure you'll get 19?

what is 16+20+15+11+13 ?
gabbyalicorn
  • gabbyalicorn
oh, i got 15
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep :) Now we got the same thing. Step number two: \(\sf x-x_{mean}\) For example, you have x= 16 and xmean is 15, so 16-15 is 1. Do this for x=20, x= 15, x=11 and x=13 and tell me what you get :)

20 - 15= 5 11- 13= 2

hmm.. given data-mean so it will be like 16-15 = 1 20-15 = ? 15-15= ? 11-15 =? 13-15 = ?

oh, i see sorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
no worries :)

  • gabbyalicorn
20-15 = 5 15-15= 0 11-15 = 4 13-15 = 2

  • anonymous
right, since we are getting the absolute values, we'll ignore the negative differences:) So far we have the differences: 1, 5, 0, 4, 2 now let's move to step 3:|dw:1434479892954:dw| Add the values you get from step 2 :)

11

  • anonymous
you forgot to add the difference of 16-15 :)
gabbyalicorn
  • gabbyalicorn
oh 12
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes! now let's go one with the final step. Divide that sum to the number of given data set, which is 5.. so 12/5 is?

2.4
