Another one that I'm stuck with.
Five pieces of wood have an average length of 124 centimeters and a median length of 140 centimeters. What is the maximum possible length, in centimeters, of the shortest piece of wood?
I have no clue on how to approach this question.
S/5=124 --> 620 is the total length of all 5 pieces.
Maximum length of the shortest piece is when everything above median is 140.
so 3*140= 420. 620-420= 200. So we have 100 and 100. That is the MAXIMUM length of the SHORTEST piece.
I caps this one b/c when i did this question a while back I messed up b/c of that.
