## Question:

Here are four of the Verizon data speeds (Mbps) from Figure 3-1: 13.5, 10.2, 21.1, 15.1. Find the mean and median of these four values. Then find the mean and median after including a fifth value of 142, which is an outlier. (One of the Verizon data speeds is 14.2 Mbps, but 142 is used here as an error resulting from an entry with a missing decimal point.) Compare the two sets of results. How much was the mean affected by the inclusion of the outlier? How much is the median affected by the inclusion of the outlier?
