Ann -- $450,000 Bob --$360,000 Cal -- $190,000 Dot -- [#permalink] ### Show Tags 10 Oct 2006, 08:19 00:00 Difficulty: (N/A) Question Stats: 0% (00:00) correct 0% (00:00) wrong based on 1 sessions ### HideShow timer Statistics This topic is locked. If you want to discuss this question please re-post it in the respective forum. 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

I don't know where to begin with this one...

At present:
190K 210K 360K 450K 680K

Hence median is 360K.

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.
