Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
If the second set is contained in the 1st, itÂ´ll always be possible that both have the same mean, median, range. What will never happen is that the second set, a subset of the 1st one, has a greater range. Thus, E.
Also, if you are going to scan or post images directly from the tests, please reduce/resize them, itÂ´s a bit unconfortable to read from those extra-bulky images. Thanx
I just used a smaller sample so it's easier to handle.
S contains 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
T could be any of the four numbers in S.
Mean of S = 3
Range of S = 5-1 = 4
Median of S = 3
We can pick any of the 4 numbers (without repeats) in Set T to test the statements.
A. If T contains 1, 2, 4, 5. Mean of T = 3
B. If T contains 1, 2, 4, 5. Median of T is 3
C. If T contains 1, 2, 4, 5. Range of T is 5-1=4
D. If T contains 1, 2, 3, 4. Mean of T = 2.5, which is less than Mean of S.
E. Range of S is 4. Here, no matter which 4 numbers you pick for T you can get a range that is greater than 4.
So E is the answer.
