Data are collected about the amount of time, in minutes, each member of a dance troupe spend practicing. How does a single outlier change the median of the collected data? A single outlier doubles the value of the median. A single outlier does not affect the median. A single outlier causes the value of the median to move slightly toward the outlier. A single outlier causes the value of the median to move slightly away from the outlier.
