# Calculate the Mean Absolute Deviation

Follow these steps to find the MAD for each class’s line plot:

- List the data for the class vertically.
- Next to each score, write the distance of that score from the mean.
- Find the mean of these distances by adding them together and dividing by the number of values.

## Hint:

Remember that distances are always positive numbers.
