Solution:

Arranging the numbers from the smallest to the largest, we have:

25, 87, 92, 191, 270

Therefore, the middle value of 92 is the median.

Solution

Given
In this question, we are given that
• A table containing the data related to the acreage managed by different agencies, and the average millions of acres that is managed by each of the agencies

To find
We need to determine
• The median acreage managed by the Federal Land Management agencies

Approach and Working out
If we arrange the numbers either in ascending order or descending order, the median will be the middle-most number
(note that, as the number of elements here is an odd number, there will be only one middle element here)
• Ascending order = 25, 87, 92, 191, 270
• Descending order = 270, 191, 92, 87, 25
We can see in either of the cases, the middle element is 92, which is the median here

Thus, option B is the correct answer.

What if ascending and descending orders differ? What would be in that case?
