The following data shows the weight, in pounds, of 6 bags:
6, 4, 8, 7, 8, 9
What is the value of the mean absolute deviation of the weight of the bags, and what does it represent about the weight of a bag?
1.8 pounds; on average, weight of a bag varies 1.8 pounds from the mean of 7 pounds
1.3 pounds; on average, weight of a bag varies 1.3 pounds from the mean of 7 pounds
1.3 pounds; the weight of 50% of the bags is greater than 1.3 pounds
1.8 pounds; the weight of 50% of the bags is greater than 1.8 pounds

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Divide by the number of numbers, meaning divide 42 by how many bags are in the data set. 7 pounds is the average weight of the bags.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To find the mean deviation, you have to find the distance of each number to the value or 7.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, and the problem is looking for the mean deviation. Find the distance from all the numbers to 7.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Subtract the mean from each value, ignore minus signs if there are in the solution. So, 7  6 7  4 7  8 7  7 7  8 7  9 After you've received all the distances, add them all up and you'll receive the deviation.
