So does that mean that this set does not contain any -ve integers? I am assuming it can not but why?

The set cannot have negative integers because of the given data points.
The median is 25 so the middle element is 25.
The range is 25 so greatest - smallest = 25
We know that 25 is there in the set so the smallest element can certainly not be less than 0 since the range of the entire set is 25.

I missed "different" here and so, assumed the first 8 integers to be 25, and arrived at the highest number as 50:(.
