**Q9. Numbers 50 , 42 , 35 , 2x + 10 , 2x – 8 , 12 , 11 , 8 are written in descending order and their median is 25 , find x.**

**SOLUTION :**

Given the number of observation , n = 8

Given median = 25

∴ 2x+1 = 25

⇒ 2x = 24

⇒ x = 12

**SOLUTION :**

Given the numbers are 46 , 64 , 87 , 41 , 58 , 77 , 35 , 90 , 55 , 92 , 33

Arranging the numbers in ascending order

33 , 35 , 41 , 46 , 55 , 58 , 64 , 77 , 87 , 90 , 92

n = 11 (odd)

If 92 is replaced by 99 and 41 by 43

Then the new values are : 33 , 35 , 43 , 46 , 55 , 58 , 64 , 77 , 87 , 90 , 99

n = 11 (odd)

**Q11 . Find the median of the following data : 41 , 43 , 127 , 99 , 61 , 92 , 71 , 58 , 57 .If 58 is replaced by 85 , what will be the new median ?**
