    Nope, the mean stayed the same. If you add something that is the mean, it's going to stay the same. Checking on the calculator only confirms the assumption.

    The standard deviation does, however change. I believe it decreases as you are reducing the spread of data in this circumstance.
    We're dealing with classes mate, so the mean contributes to the 3-3.5 class. Think about it very carefully. The mean decreases slightly.

    I know what you're saying, but I took it to mean that the 3.43 was factored in exactly as it is, not added to a class in the table. So I'm still going with the mean staying the same.

    Either way, it seems a bit ambiguous?
    or does it...?

    Nope, sorry but the mean did decrease! It's only one or two marks though

    They specifically asked for how it changes the ESTIMATE for the mean, no ambiguity
