Blockbust video collected data to figure out how many movies they were renting per month. After 5 months, the store wanted to analyze their data to find diffrent statistical measures.
Data:
Month Movies Rented
1 523
2 625
3 550
4 604
5 864
outlier: 864
Question: which statistical measure would you use if an outlier is present (mean, median, mode, range)? Explain.

I would use median.

explain why you would use median.

The corect answer would be median.
The reason is simple. With an outlier present mean, mode, and range's outcome would all be effected were as to the middle number (median) would not be effected at all.
