Algebra I
The vertical drop of a roller coaster is the largest difference in height between any high point and the next low point. The vertical drops of five roller coasters at Mandelbrot Amusement Park are shown in the table.
The Parabola  165 feet
The G Force  119 feet
The Mean Streak  138 feet
The Tower of Power  300 feet
The Maximum Ride  198 feet

The median is 165 feet.
Add the drops together and divide by 5 to find the mean.

What is the mean?

18.4

How on earth did you get something much smaller than any of the drops?
Please follow my instructions.

whoops i meant 184
posted by Joe

19 is correct
Thanks Ms. Sueposted by Joe

Right. The mean is 184
Your original post asked
"What is the positive difference between the mean and the median of these values?"
184  165 = ?
