1 Answer
• Mean
• Median

• Name the three Measures of Spread we have
discussed.

2 Answer
• Range
• Interquartile range (IQR)
• Mean Absolute Deviation (MAD)

• Heights of basketball players (in)
• 73, 67, 75, 81, 67, 75, 85, 69
• lower extreme ____
• upper extreme ____
• LQ/Q1 ____ median ____
• UQ/Q3 ____ range ____IQR ____
• Make a box plot to display the data.

5 Answer
• Heights of basketball players (in)
• 73, 67, 75, 81, 67, 75, 85, 69
• lower extreme 67
• upper extreme 85
• LQ/Q1 68 median 74
• UQ/Q3 78 range 18 IQR 10

• The IQR represents what percent of the data?
_____
• What percent of the baseball players are shorter
than 74 in? _____
• The median to the lower quartile represents what
percent of the data? _____
• What is the IQR of the data? _____
• What is the range of the data? _____
• Suppose the tallest player was 80 in, instead of
76 in. Would this be more likely to affect the
range or IQR? Explain.

14
6 Answer
• The IQR represents what percent of the data? 50
• What percent of the baseball players are shorter
than 74 in? 75
• The median to the lower quartile represents what
percent of the data? 25
• What is the IQR of the data? 8
• What is the range of the data? 12
• Suppose the tallest player was 80 in, instead of
76 in. Would this be more likely to affect the
range or IQR? Explain. The range, the higher
number would make the range larger. It wouldnt
affect the median.

Math Test Scores Olive 98 92 88 92
95 Chris 88 86 93 88 90
• Find the mean absolute deviation of both
students test scores.
• Who has a better test average?
• Who is the most consistent test taker? How do you
know?

16
7 Answer
Mean 465/5 93
Mean 445/5 89
Olives Test Scores Distance from mean
98 5
92 1
88 5
92 1
95 2
Chriss Test Scores Distance from mean
88 1
86 3
93 4
88 1
90 1
MAD 14/5 2.8
MAD 10/5 2
• Olive has a higher test average.
• Chris is the more consistent test-taker, because
his MAD is smaller. This means that his test
scores are closer to the mean.

• Ten students were surveyed to find out how much
weekly allowance they received. The following
data was collected 8, 8, 6.50, 12, 12, 9,
15, 15, 25, 45.
• mean _________________ median _____________
• Which measure of center is the most appropriate
to describe the typical allowance for this group
of students? Justify your reasoning.

8 Answer
• Ten students were surveyed to find out how much
weekly allowance they received. The following
data was collected 8, 8, 6.50, 12, 12, 9,
15, 15, 25, 45.
• mean 15.55 median 12
• Which measure of center is the most appropriate
to describe the typical allowance for this group
of students? Justify your reasoning.The median
best represents the measure of center for this
data, because it is closer to more of the data.
Eight of the ten pieces of data fall below the
mean.

• Amandas test scores are 85, 93, 84, and 88. What
does she need to score on the next test for her
test average to be a 90?

does she need to score on the next test for her
test average to be a 90?
