The owner of a company has recently decided to raise the salary of one employee, who was already making the highest salary in the company, by 40%. Which of the following value(s) is(are) expected to be affected by this raise? A) median only. B) mean only. C) mean and median only. D) mean, median, and mode.

mean only.

B

Nice work. Median does not change in this example.

since he is already making more than everyone else, it should not affect the value in the middle since it’s unlikely that his salary is the most common one, it won’t affect the mode

well if he is highest, he can’t be mode, otherwise he’d be median and mean as well.

why would being mode also make him mean and median?

How mean is giving all the raise to just one employee. So it is “Mean Only”

you are right it wouldn’t.
