1. We could remove any two numbers that add up to 26 and get a different standard deviation. Insuff.

2. Remove 22 and then remove either 2, 4, or 6 and the standard deviation changes. Insuff

Together 22 and 4 must be removed. We can calculate the SD. suff.

C. if 22 s removed from the sequence, 4 must also be removed to make the same mean.

C)...to calc the stdv of m we need to know the exact sequence of m. av of evenly spaced numbers is (first number+last number)/2. av of s is 13 and sum is 156. av of m is 13 and sum is 130. diff is 26.

1) we know the av, the sum and the diff of m and s. not enough. insuff
2) 22 is removed. not enough. insuff
1)+2) diff is 26. 22 is remove. 4 is left. we know the exact sequence of m and can calc the stdv.
