If the data numbers are all really close together than no. But if the data has numbers; for example: 12,43,45,51,57,62,90 (12 and 90 are the outliers) which are really far aprt, than yes.

They are called extreme values or outliers.

Outliers will make give the graph a long tail (or tails). Overall, the graph will be flatter and wider.

there are no limits to outliers there are no limits to outliers

In statistics, outliers are values outside the norm relative to the rest of collected data. Many times they can skew the results and distort the interpretation of data. They may or may not indicate anything significant; they might just be an anomalous data point that is not significant. It is difficult to tell.

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

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

It is not.

Outliers

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

Go into your data to determine which values are outliers and if they're significant and random (not an apparent group), eliminate them. This will take them out of your boxplot.

I think it means that our data includes outliers.

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.
