### What is the mean average of these numbers: 18, 12, 10, 10, 25?

• A.

10

• B.

12

• C.

15

C. 15
Explanation
The mean average is calculated by adding up all the numbers and then dividing the sum by the total number of values. In this case, the sum of the numbers is 18 + 12 + 10 + 10 + 25 = 75. Since there are 5 numbers, the mean average is 75 divided by 5, which equals 15.

### The mean average of three numbers is 8. Two of the numbers are 11 and 7. What is the third number?

• A.

6

• B.

7

• C.

8

A. 6
Explanation
Since the mean average of three numbers is 8, we can find the sum of the three numbers by multiplying the average by the total number of numbers. So, 8 multiplied by 3 is 24. We know that two of the numbers are 11 and 7, which sum up to 18. To find the third number, we subtract 18 from 24, resulting in 6. Therefore, the third number is 6.

### The temperature in degrees Celsius over 4 days in July was 27, 27, 30 and 32. What was the  mean temperature?

• A.

27 degrees Celsius

• B.

29 degrees Celsius

• C.

31 degrees Celsius

B. 29 degrees Celsius
Explanation
The mean temperature is calculated by adding all the temperatures together and dividing by the number of days. In this case, the sum of the temperatures is 27 + 27 + 30 + 32 = 116. Since there are 4 days, the mean temperature is 116/4 = 29 degrees Celsius.

• A.

2.3

• B.

2.8

• C.

2.9

B. 2.8
Explanation
The median is the middle value when the numbers are arranged in ascending order. In this case, when we arrange the numbers in ascending order, we get 2.3, 2.4, 2.8, 2.9, 2.9. The middle value is 2.8, so it is the median.

A. 28c
Explanation
The median is the middle value in a set of numbers when they are arranged in ascending or descending order. In this case, when we arrange the costs in ascending order, we get 15c, 19c, 28c, 45c, 45c. The middle value is 28c, so it is the median cost.

Explanation
The range of a group of numbers is the difference between the highest and lowest values in the group. In this case, the highest number is 79 and the lowest number is 39. The difference between these two numbers is 40, so the range of this group of numbers is 40.

• A.

6

• B.

7

• C.

8

B. 7
Explanation
The median is the middle value when the numbers are arranged in ascending order. In this case, the numbers arranged in ascending order are 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 10. Since there are 6 numbers, the middle value would be the average of the 3rd and 4th numbers, which are 6 and 8. The average of 6 and 8 is 7, so 7 is the median of these numbers.
