Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Have you considered calculating the mean and the subsequent absolute deviations?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I do not believe you cannot calculate the mean. Go!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Perfect. Now, how far away from the mean is each of the values? We want ABSOLUTE deviation, so don't worry about direction. Just how far away from 7 is it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I'm not sure how you managed those values. 9  7 = 2 ==> 2 7  7 = 0 ==> 0 6  7 = 1 ==> 1 8  7 = 1 ==> 1 7  7 = 0 ==> 0 5  7 = 2 ==> 2 You should get 2 0 1 1 0 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Are you sure they are correct? What is an "Absolute Deviation"? Think on it and BE SURE!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So did I. Do you believe those values? If you don't believe and aren't sure where they came from, we can't move on.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Calculate the mean of those values.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Review: 1) Calculate the mean of the data. 2) Calculate the deviation from the mean for each datum. This is the "Deviation". 3) Use "Absolute Value" on each deviation to create the "Absolute Deviation". 4) Find he mean of the values from #3 to create the "Mean Absolute Deviation". You should see how the very name of the calculation suggests how to calculate it. Good work.
