The data in the table below gives the number of thrift stores (second-hand stores) in five north western states. The standard deviation for this data is 229.54. Use this information to answer Questions 22 – 24.

22

3

How would the standard deviation change (increase, decrease, or stay the same) if each state had two more thrift stores? You do not need to recalculate the standard deviation.

23

3

If California with 1,883 thrift stores was added to this data set, how would that effect the standard deviation (increase, decrease, or stay the same)? You do not need to recalculate the standard deviation. Be sure to support your claim.

Kent found out that Alaska has 57 thrift stores. He says if you included Alaska and California’s thrift stores, the median is not affected. Do you agree or not? Explain your thinking.
