A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

What is a better measure of variability range or standard deviation?

The standard deviation is better since it takes account of all the information in the data set. However, the range is quick and easy to compute.

What measures are used to describe variability?

Generally, the standard deviation (represented by sigma, an O with a line at the top) would be used to measure variability. The standard deviation represents the average distance of data from the mean. Another measure is variance, which is the standard deviation squared. Lastly, you might use the interquartile range, which is often the range of the middle 50% of the data.

What does variability mean in math?

Variability is an indicationof how widely spread or closely clustered the data valuesnare. Range, minimum and maximum values, and clusters in the distribution give some indication of variability.

In mathematics central tendency is the tendency of data values to cluster around some central value. What does a measure of variability tell you about the central tendency of a set of data Explain.?

The measure of variability tells you how close to the central value the data values lie: that is whether the cluster is tightly packed around the central value of spread out over a large range of values.

What is the definition for variability in math terms?

What is the primary disadvantage of using the range to compare the variability of data sets?

The range is very sensitive to outliers. Indeed if there are outliers then the range will be unrelated to any other elements of the sample.
