Data set: 2, 10, 10, 11, 11, 12, 12, 12, 13, 14, 14 range: 14 - 2 = 12 median: 12 lower quartile = 10 interquartile range = 4 Data set w/o outlier 2: 10, 10, 11, 11, 12, 12, 12, 13, 14, 14 range: 14 - 10 = 4 median: 12 lower quartile: 10.5 interquartile range = 3.5 The value that change the most by removing the outlier is A.) THE RANGE.

To answer the problem above, we must define what an outlier is. An outlier is a number in a set of data that is smaller or larger than the rest of the data. In this problem, the outlier is 2. To know which value changed the most we solve each with and without the outlier. A. range: 12(with), 4(without) B. median: 12 (with), 12 (without) C. lower quartile: 10.5(with), 11(without) D. interquartile range: 2(with), 2(without) The answer is A. range.
