Best Answer

Depends on whether the outlier was too small or too large.

If the outlier was too small, the mean without the outlier would be larger. Conversely, if the outlier was too large, the mean without the outlier would be smaller.

However, action from an atmosphere can erode craters and bury them under sediment.
