Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The median is the middle number or the division of the two middle numbers and doesn't change too much if an outlier is in the data but the mean can change greatly from one change in the data so your answer is true

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what she said is right, just the words are a bit mixed up, the mean can change more easily with outliers so median is MORE resistant, and not LESS resistant, so the answer is false
