The difference between the largest and smallest numbers in a data set is called the range.

The semiquartile range is half the difference between the quartiles. So find Q3 and subtract Q1 then divide that number by 2.

There is no formal definition of a outlier: it is a data point that is way out of line wit the remaining data set.If Q1 and Q3 are the lower and upper quartiles of the data set, then (Q3 - Q1) is the inter quartile range IQR. A high end outlier is determined by a value which is larger thanQ3 + k*IQR for some positive value k. k = 1.5 is sometimes used.

There are none in that range.

A categorical variable (also known as a discrete variable) is one whose range is countable; e.g. the variable answ has values [yes, no, not sure]. answ is a categorical variable with range 3.A continuous variable is one which is not categorical; e.g. weight is a continuous variable which can take any value between 0 and 1000 kg (say) for a human being.

Calculate the mean, median, and range with the outlier, and then again without the outlier. Then find the difference. Mode will be unaffected by an outlier.

1,2,3,4,20 20 is the outlier range

An outlier will have a huge affect on the range as the range is the largest value minus the smallest value.

On the standard deviation. It has no effect on the IQR.

Yes, it will. An outlier is a data point that lies outside the normal range of data. This means that if it is factored in the mean will move in the direction the outlier is, really high if the outlier was high, and really low if the outlier was low.

an outlier can be found with this formula... Q3-Q1= IQR( inner quartile range) IQR*1.5=x x+Q3= anything higher than this # is an outlier Q1-x= anything smaller than this # is an outlier

The difference is that the later is a SPORT.

The range.

An outlier can make the range go up.Example:say you have the numbers. 2,5,4,1,7,and 18.in order from least to greatest: 1,2,4,5,7,18range is the greatest number - the littlest number.so in this case it is 18-1 which equals 17say if there was no outlier and the highest number was 7it would be 7-1 which is 6 and it makes the outlier smaller....

The range is the spread between maximum and minimum values.
