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 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.


What does the outlier affect the most out of mean median and mode?

The mean. Or the mode.


How does the outlier affect the mean median mode and range?

The outlier is capable of affecting mean median mode and range it affects mean because the average has changed if affects median because you have to cross out 1 more letter it doesn't affect mode it does affect range because an outlier is a number that i far away from the other numbers * * * * * It does not affect the median.


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 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.


Between Mean Median and Mode which are affected most by an outlier?

The mean is affected the most by an outlier.


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.


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.


Math problem with the numbers 35 23 15 23 If an outlier of 100 is added to the this math problem how will it affect the mean medium and mode?

35, 23, 15, 23: Mean: 24 Median: 23 Mode: 23 35, 23, 15, 23, 100: Mean: 39.2 Median: 23 Mode: 23 In this particular case, only the mean is affected by adding the outlier of 100.


What happens to the mean median and mode for the data shown if the outlier is eliminated 8 3 5 3 23 4 7?

The mean and median become smaller, the mode does not change.
