QUESTION: 1

### If the arithmetic mean of two numbers is 10 and their geometric mean is 8, the numbers are

Solution:

Let the numbers be a and b Then

Solving a + b = 20 and a - b = 12 we get a  = 16 and b = 4.

QUESTION: 2

### The median of 0, 2, 2, 2, -3, 5, -1, 5, 5, -3, 6, 6, 5, 6 is

Solution:

Observations in ascending order are -3, -3, -1, 0, 2, 2, 2, 5, 5, 5, 5 6, 6, 6
Number of observations is 14, which is even.
