There is no limit to the number of outliers there can be in a set of data.

It is not.

Mean- If there are no outliers. A really low number or really high number will mess up the mean. Median- If there are outliers. The outliers will not mess up the median. Mode- If the most of one number is centrally located in the data. :)

Mode: Data are qualitative or categoric. Median: Quantitative data with outliers - particularly if the distribution is skew. Mean: Quantitative data without outliers, or else approx symmetrical.

When the distribution has outliers. They will skew the mean but will not affect the median.

The whiskers mark the ends of the range of figures - they are the furthest outliers. * * * * * No. Outliers are not part of a box and whiskers plot. The whiskers mark the ends of the minimum and maximum observations EXCLUDING outliers. Outliers, if any, are marked with an X.

Of course. In a large sampling of data, a relatively small group of outliers is possible.

maybe!!

You can only do it if either the outliers are way out - so far that they must be odd, so far that there can be no argument, no need for statistics to prove them to be outliers, or you need to prove that they are outliers using statistics - something like Grubb's test. To do that, the simplest way is software.

an outliers can affect the symmetry of the data because u can still move around it
