this is a question that is really making me struggle and i dont understand the point of it and how it works..... lets say
i had some random data:
the mean is 88
and the standard dev = 5
what if i added another number such as 88 lets say: how would it affect your mean and standard dev?
what if i added 50 how would it affect your standard dev and mean?
how does one make the mean increase but the standard deviation stay the same??
I dont understand how certain data values can affect them,,,thats just my general question: above is some random data i made up :")
thank you so much, i have an exam tomorrow and i really dont get these things.
thank you again.
