**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, September 8, 2009 at 7:22pmSince mean and average are the same, the best answer is B.

**PsyDAG**, Wednesday, September 9, 2009 at 2:33pmI would disagree with Ms. Sue. Since the mean is most influenced by deviant scores, it would be least appropriate. To test this out, calculate the means with and without the July-August data.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
