  • Outliers are a number that are way out of the data range. They are pretty obvious to pick out; for example: 1,3,4,4,6,3,2,8,26,5,2,1 The outlier would be the number 26.

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 many outliers can a data set have?

There is no agreed definition of an outlier and consequently, there is no simple answer to the question. The number of outliers will depend on the criterion used to identify them. If you have observations from a normal distribution, you should expect around 1 in 22 observations to be more than 2 standard deviations from the mean, and about 1 in 370 more than 3 sd away. You will have more outliers if the distribution is non-normal - particularly if it is skewed.

What is the outlier in 64 67 68 69 73 75 79?

There is no agreed definition of outliers. However two common criteria to identify outliers are: Method I: If Q1 is the lower quartile and Q3 the upper quartile then any number smaller than Q1 - 1.5*(Q3 - Q1) or larger than Q3 + 1.5*(Q3 - Q1) is an outlier. By that criterion there is no outlier. Method II: Assume the numbers are normally distributed. then outliers are with absolute z-scores greater than 1.96. Again, there are no outliers.
