Which of the following could be the median for a set of integers {97, 98, 56, x, 86}, given that 20 < x < 80?

(A) 71
(B) 86
(C) 91.5
(D) 97
(E) 397.5


Since we're told x is an INTEGER, we can eliminate C and E

Rearrange KNOWN values in ascending order: {56, 86, 97, 98}

At this point, we can see that, if x is some number between 56 and 86, the median will be 86

For example, if x = 60, then the set becomes {56, 60, 86, 97, 98}
Median = 86

Answer: B

set of integers wont have optins c & e

so re arranging set ( 56,86,x,97,98)

only value which goes correct is B 86 .
