Outlier: an observation that is very different from the rest of the data.How does this affect the data: outliers affect data because it means that your calculations might be off which makes it a possibility that more than the outlier is off.

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

No. The data set will remain the data set: they are the observations that are recorded.

Such a data point is called an outlier.

What is the outlier in this set of data 10064635862?

there is no outlier because there isn't a data set to go along with it. so theres no outlier

If an outlier is included with a sample of 50 values all of which are the same what is the effect of the outlier on the mean?

By definition, an outlier will not have the same value as other data points in the dataset. So, the correct question is "What is the effect of an outlier on a dataset's mean." The answer is that the outlier moves the mean away from the value of the other 49 identical values. If the outlier is the "high tail" the mean is moved to a higher value. If the outlier is a "low tail" the mean is moved to a lower value.

How do you get an outlier?

the most common cause of an outlier is an error in the recording of data.

A single observation cannot have an outlier.

What do you take if there is an outlier in data?

If a data set has an outlier, you would normally deal with it by omitting it from the average of the other values.

If you take off the outlier does it make the mean change?

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.

Can you have more than one outlier in a set of data?

Yes, any data point outside thestandard deviation its an outlier

Does an outlier have a greater effect on the standard deviation or interquartile range?

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