What is the MEDIAN of 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77?HINT ::
The median is the middle value, so I'll have to rewrite the list in order:
13, 13, 13, 13, 14, 14, 16, 18, 21
There are nine numbers in the list, so the middle one will be the (9 + 1) Ã· 2 = 10 Ã· 2 = 5th number:
13, 13, 13, 13, 14, 14, 16, 18, 21
So the median is 14.
A.
33
B.
22
C.
11
D.
44
E.
77
Correct Answer D. 44
Explanation The median is the middle value when the numbers are arranged in ascending order. In this case, the numbers are 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77. When arranged in ascending order, the list becomes 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77. Since there are seven numbers in the list, the middle number will be the (7 + 1) Ã· 2 = 8 Ã· 2 = 4th number. Therefore, the median is 44.

What is the MEAN of 12, 87, 9, 4, 73, 14?
HINT :: The mean is the usual average, so ::
(13 + 18 + 13 + 14 + 13 + 16 + 14 + 21 + 13) ÷ 9 = 15
The "mean" is the "average" you're used to, where you add up all the numbers and then divide by the number of numbers. The "median" is the "middle" value in the list of numbers. To find the median, your numbers have to be listed in numerical order, so you may have to rewrite your list first. The "mode" is the value that occurs most often. If no number is repeated, then there is no mode for the list.
A.
290
B.
146
C.
208
D.
199
E.
406
Correct Answer D. 199
Explanation The mean of a set of numbers is found by adding up all the numbers and then dividing the sum by the total number of numbers. In this case, the sum of 12, 87, 9, 4, 73, and 14 is 199. Since there are 6 numbers in the set, the mean is 199 divided by 6, which equals 33.17.
