# The three measures of center introduced in this chapter are the mean, median, and trimmed mean. Two additional measures of center that are occasionally used are the midrange , which is the average of the smallest and largest observations, and the midfourth , which is the average of the two fourths. Which of these five measures of center are resistant to the effects of outliers and which are not? Explain your reasoning.
