How would adding a scoresheet of 0 to this data affect the mean and median game scores?Game scores 60708080100

Accepted Solution

Hey there!

Here is your answer:

The proper answer to this question is "the median is subtracting the greatest number in a data set to the least number in a data set therefore the median would change".


The old median would of been:

(remember in order to solve a median you have to subtract the greatest number to the least number)

Which would equal 40 which would of been the median.

Since you added the number 0 in the data set you have to subtract:
Which would equal 100.
Meaning 100 would be the new median.Β 
Which means when you add the zero is changes (and greatly increases) the median of this data set.

Therefore the answer is that the median would change.
