    well, most of the data values are between 15 and 25, except 4 4 is much smaller than the others, so what do you think the right answer is?

    Given the box plot, will the mean or the median provide a better description of the center? box plot with min at 11, Q1 at 22.5, median at 34.5, Q3 at 36, max at 37.5 The mean, because the data distribution is symmetrical The mean, because the data distribution is skewed to the left The median, because the data distribution is skewed to the left The median, because the data distribution is skewed to the right
