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?

  3. How on earth did you get something much smaller than any of the drops?

    Please follow my instructions.

    Add the drops together and divide by 5 to find the mean.

  4. whoops i meant 184

  5. 19 is correct
    Thanks Ms. Sue

  6. 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 = ?
