  • Mrs. Sue Algebra outlier/mean recheck -

    Your first answers are right.

    What is the outlier for the second one?

  • Mrs. Sue Algebra outlier/mean recheck -

    the outlier is -16 for question 2

  • Mrs. Sue Algebra outlier/mean recheck -

    Yes.

    -10/8 = -1.2

    Eliminating -16, the median is ?

  • Mrs. Sue Algebra outlier/mean recheck -

    eliminating -16 would be
    12 -6 = 6 for the mean

  • Ms. Sue Algebra outlier/mean recheck -

    Nope.

  • Mrs. Sue Algebra outlier/mean recheck -

    eliminating the -16 would be -6
    -1
    -3
    -2
    = -6

    so 12 - 6 = 6 as mean w/o -16 outlier

  • Mrs. Sue Algebra outlier/mean recheck -

    6/7

  • Mrs. Sue Algebra outlier/mean recheck -

    ,857 is the mean
    i messed up
    12 + -6 = 6
    6 /7
    = .857
    i forgot a step thanks again and again
    .857 is the mean without outlier -16
