Ann -- $450,000
Bob -- $360,000
Cal -- $190,000
Dot -- $210,000
Ed -- $680,000

The table above shows the total sales recorded in July for the 5 salespeople at acme truck sales. It was discovered that one of Cal's sales was incorrectly recorded as one of Ann's sales. After this error was corrected, Ann's total sales were still higher than Cal's total sales, and the median of the 5 sales totals was $330,000. What is the value of the incorrectly recorded sale?

A) $30,000
B) $48,000
C) $90,000
D) $120,000
E) $140,000

The new median is 330.Hence one of 450K(Ann) and 190K(Cal) has to be 330.But if 190K is 330 then median will be 360.Hence 450K has to be 330K only then median will be 330K. Hence 450K-330K=120K -Verifying that "Ann's total sales were still higher than Cal's total sales" - Option (D) is the answer.

Ed -- $680,000
Ann -- $450,000

as long as they are five values then mdian must be present as a value

abd since anne and cals are the only changeable values one of them will be the median

ann>cal's

ann sales has to be decreased and it will decrease by 450 - 330 = 120
