Mean Absolute Deviation Practice 1. Daily Visitors to a Web Site: The MAD is 18. 48 indicating the average difference of visits to a web site from the mean is 18. 48 times. The data is spread out in relation to the mean. Step 2 (cont. ): Use Step 2: Find the Step 1: Find the Mean distance each element is from the mean the absolute value of each distance Step 3: Calculate the mean of these distances

Mean Absolute Deviation Practice 2. Zoo Admission Prices: The MAD is 0. 5 indicating the average difference of prices from the mean is $0. 50. The data is less spread out and closer to the mean. Step 1: Find the Mean Step 2: Find the distance each element is from the mean Step 2 (cont. ): Use the absolute value of each distance Step 3: Calculate the mean of these distances

Mean Absolute Deviation Practice 3. Height of Waterslides: Splash Lagoon vs. Wild Water Bay Step 1: Find the Mean of Splash Lagoon Step 2: Find the distance each element is from the mean and use the absolute value of each distance Step 3: Calculate the mean of these distances Step 1: Find the Mean of Wild Water Bay Step 2: Find the distance each element is from the mean and use the absolute value of each distance Step 3: Calculate the mean of these distances

Mean Absolute Deviation Practice 3. Height of Waterslides: Splash Lagoon vs. Wild Water Bay

Mean Absolute Deviation Practice 3. Height of Waterslides: Splash Lagoon vs. Wild Water Bay The MAD for Splash Lagoon is 10. 32. The MAD for Wild Water Bay is 12. 48. A lower MAD indicates the data is less spread out and closer to the mean. Therefore, the height of the waterslides at Splash Lagoon are closer to the mean height demonstrating less variation in the height of each slide in comparison to the slides at Wild Water Bay.
