    Answer:

    B decrease

    Step-by-step explanation:

    First, lets put the numbers in order from greatest to least.

    10 9 9 8 6 4 4

    Second, let’s find the median without number 1. (The median is in bold.)

    10 9 9 8 6 4 4

    Third, let’s add the number 1.

    10 9 9 8 6 4 4 1

    Fourth, let’s find the median with the number 1.

    10 9 9 8 6 4 4 1

    Since there are two numbers in the middle let’s find the average between them.

    8+6=14

    14/2= 7

    Last, let’s compare the two medians.

    8>7

    So when you add the number 1 the median decreases. So your answer is B decrease
