LEARNING ACTIVITY 3 2 Learning Activity 3 1. (20 Pts, 1 Pt each). Calculate the mean, median, mode, standard deviation, and range for the following sets of measurements (fill out the table): a. 9, 7, 6, 6, 2 b. 12, 10, 9, 8, 6 c. 82, 82, 82, 82, 82 d. 12, 10, 9, 8, 6, 45 2. (20 Pts, 5 pts each) Answer the following questions: a. Why is the SD in (d) so large compared to the SD in (b)? The Range and mean are higher in d than b, causing the standard deviation in d to be higher. b. Why is the mean so much higher in (d) than in (b)? The mean in d has an outlier that is larger than the other numbers. This increases the mean and skews the results in a higher direction. c. Why is the median relatively unaffected? The median is relatively unaffected because it is either the idle score or the sum of the middle score. Because it is measured this way it is not affected by extreme scores that lie within the data. d. Which measure of central tendency best represents the set of scores in (d)?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
