Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1^^^ Find the mean, and subtract all the values from the mean, then find the mean of that. For example. 2, 3, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 9 Find the mean. \(\sf \dfrac{2 + 3 + 3 + 4 + 6 + 8 + 9 + 9}{8} \rightarrow 5.5\) Now subtract all the values from it. \(\sf 5.5  2 = 3.5\) \(\sf 5.5  3 = 2.5\) \(\sf 5.5  3 = 2.5\) \(\sf 5.5  4 = 1.5\) \(\sf 6  5.5 = 0.5\) \(\sf 8  5.5 = 2.5\) \(\sf 9  5.5 = 3.5\) \(\sf 9  5.5 = 3.5\) Find the mean of these values. \(\sf \dfrac{3.5 + 2.5 + 2.5 + 1.5 + 0.5 + 2.5 + 3.5 + 3.5}{8} \rightarrow \color{#45D229}{\boxed{2.50}}\)
