Ages If someone said that the mean age of everyone in your algebra class is about 16 1/2 years,do you think the age of the teacher was included in the calculation ? Explain

• Math -

If you had a young teacher, yes. However, the mean is most influenced by deviant scores, so if there are no younger students who skipped to an advanced level, I would say s/he was not included.
