One more data point came in: a giant person went to your store and asked a 16. How would that affect the mode? lecture 3, Descriptive Statistics II Describing central tendency Review Relationships Among Mean, Median and Mode Measures of Variation Mean ( ctd) Geometric mean Variation Picking a Stock Measures of Variation Interquartile Range Box-and- whiskers plot Empirical Rule for Normals z-scores lecture 3, Descriptive Statistics II Describing central tendency Relationships Among Mean, Median and Mode Relationships Among Mean, Median, and...
