i feel its X only..

if you take each block upwards for 1 point and each 10 point for 1 point..then basically add the sum up and divide by the total u get that only x's mean=median

IMO E is the answer. (X and Z have the mean equal to the median)

E.

The frequency distribution for X and Z is symmetrical. Moreover, you can calculate mean and median and find out that these are equal for X and Z.

i did calculate the mean of Z and its not the same as the median..

say each of the blocks represents a weight of 1..

so for z you have 10(4)+20(3)+30(2)+40+50(2)+60(3)+70(4)=

fresinha - you got it right.

As per you calculation it is 760/19 = 40 which is equal to the median.

OE is E.
