Linear Transformation A linear transformation changes the original variable x into the new variable x new given by an equation of the form x new = a + bx Adding the constant a shifts all values of x upward or downward by the same amount. Multiplying by the positive constant b changes the size of the unit of measurement.

Unformatted text preview: Multiplying each observation by a positive number b multiplies both measures of center (mean and median) and measures of spread ( standard deviation and IQR) by b. Adding the same number a ( either positive or negative to each observation adds a to measures of center and to quartiles but does not change measures of spread.
