Good, but it said number 9 was wrong when i did it. You do count anomolous results when calculating the mean, that's what's bad about the mean. Tell me if I'm wrong. Good quiz all the same. :)

You remove any anomalies when calculating the mean. That's why it is the most accurate method of finding the average :)
