Mary's test grades were 81, 89, 86, 86, and 84. Mary's teacher recorded one of her grades incorrectly. Instead of an 89, Mary's second test score should have been a 55. Which measure(s) of central tendency are affected by this change?

Mode will still be 86, but mean and median will be changed. Mean functions very much like a fulcrum (balance point). Going from highest score to lowest will change the median (50th percentile).
