When you are looking at a group of data sets, why might it be that the mean would change, but the median would not? This is the data I happen to be working with, if it helps:
I. Mean = $50,410 Median = $50,000
II. Mean = $106,100 Median = $50,000
III. Mean= $55,090 Median = $50,000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the mean depends on the sum of a set; sums differ depending on the numbers the median depends on the position of a value ... positions can hold the same value.
