Statistical Outliers

In a statistics class I took for my college education, I learned how to find outliers in a certain set of data. When they are below or above a certain number then that is called an outlier. There is a formula you follow for the low and high outliers and I will not try to teach them to you. However, it is easier than you would think given it is statistics. I do not find math easy, but I worked hard in this class and received a B in it. This was a huge feat for me and while at first it was disappointing that I received a B, I now realize it was a win, because I was able to understand it enough to overcome my fear of statistics. It helped that the instructor went slow enough for everyone to understand.
