Question

A meteorologist preparing a talk about global warming compiled a list of weekly low temperatures (in degrees Fahrenheit) he observed at his southern Florida home last year. The coldest temperature for any week was

$36 ^ { \circ } \mathrm { F }$

, but he inadvertently recorded the Celsius value of

$2 ^ { \circ }$

. Assuming that he correctly listed all the other temperatures, explain how this error will affect these summary statistics: measures of center: mean and median.

The mean temperature will be lower. The median temperature will not change, Since the incorrect temperature is still the lowest temperature, and the median is based only on position.
