Juan bought some paperback books that cost \$8 each and some hardcover books that cost \$25 each. If Juan bought more than 10 paperback books, how many hardcover books did he buy?

St1-the total cost of the hardcover books that Juan bought was at least \$150.
St2-the total cost of all the books that Juan bought was less than \$250.

A certain list consists of 5 different integers. Is the average of the two greatest integers in the list greater than 70?

St1-the median of the integers in the list is 70.
St2-the average of the integers in the list is 70.

for the first question, it seems to me that there are two possibilities:
paperbooks: 11
hardcover: 6
total cost: 238

or

paperbooks: 12
hardcover: 6
total cost: 246

can someone clarify?

The question is asking for the number of hardcover books bought. Combining the 2 statements, the number of hardcover books cannot be more than 6 even though the number of paperback books bought can vary (hence, your 2 possibilities).
