A sample has a mean of M = 25. If one person with a score of X = 25 is added to the sample, what effect will it have on the sample mean?

Nothing.

@ Ms. Sue, your answer is nothing? can you explain why the effect is nothing? I'm not understanding.

The new person's score is the same as the mean; therefore the mean will not be affected.
