Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To determine the MAD of the data, add all the data together and divide by 11.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Cool, now subtract the outlier from it, which is 23.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, subtract 23 from 83, which gives you 60. Divide 60 by 10.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now, subtract each set of data except for the outlier from 6 (62, 61, 69..)do not subtract 23.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, not from just the three of them, all of them (62, 69, 61, 63, 67, 610, 62, 610, 69, 67)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now, find the absolute value of the data. That is to drop all the negative signs in the data. Any negative number will become positive and positives will stay positive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That would result in: 4, 3, 5, 3, 1, 4, 4, 4, 3, 1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now divide 32 by 10, you get 3.2 right?!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No. Just 3.2 Forget about 6.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13.2 is your Mean Absolute deviation. It determines the distance between the mean and the average of the data.
