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

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How does the outlier effect the mean median and mode in a set of data?

There would be a difference to the median. The old number wouldn't be the median but the mode wouldn't change. If the outlier is a high value, it will cause the mean value to shift to the higher side, while a low valued outlier will drop the mean value to a lower number.


Does the outlier affect the mean median and mode?

Yes, no, and no. The mean uses all numbers so it WILL be influenced by an outlier (sometimes heavily). The median is the middle number, so it can't be. The mode is the most frequent number, so it really can't be.


What is the median to the following distribution 25 33 43 43?

It is 38.


What statement about the data is true 724 727 996 712 725 704 730 710 Both the median and mode are appropriate measures of center. The median is the only appropriate measure of center. The mean media?

There is no mode so it is not a measure of anything! Te data set contains an outlier: 996 and so the median is a better measure of the centre than the mean.


Outlier is unusually small or large data value?

An outlier can be very large or small. its usally 1.5 times the mean. they can be seen with a cat and whisker box * * * * * The answer to the question is YES. "Its usually 1.5 times the mean" is utter rubbish - apart from the typo. If a distribution had a mean of zero, such as the standard Normal distribution, then almost every observation would be greater than 1.5 times the mean = 0 and so almost every observation would be an outlier! No. There is no universally agreed definition for an outlier but one contender is values that are more than 1.5 times the interquartile range away from the median.

Is Median an outlier?

No, median is not an outlier.


How does the outlier affect the median?

Outlier does not affect the median.


What is an ouutlier effect on the median?

An outlier pulls the median towards it. For example 1,2,3 Median=2 1,2,3,7 Median=2.5


How do you determine how the outlier affects the mean median mode and range?

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.


How does outlier affect mean median mode?

An outlier pulls the mean towards it. It does not affect the median and only affects the mode if the mode is itself the outlier.

Which of the following is least affected if an extreme high outlier is added to your data mean median or standard deviation or ALL?

The median is least affected by an extreme outlier. Mean and standard deviation ARE affected by extreme outliers.


What is the outlier of the mean median and mode?

The median and mode cannot be outliers. For small samples a mode could be an outlier.


How does an outlier affect data?

it messes up the mean and sometimes the median. * * * * * An outlier cannot mess up the median.


How does the outlier affect the mean median mode?

An outlier can increase or decrease the mean and median It usually doesn't affect the mode


How would the outlier affect the mean and median of the data?

An outlier will pull the mean and median towards itself. The extent to which the mean is affected will depend on the number of observations as well as the magnitude of the outlier. The median will change by a half-step.
