Physics (and math) are fun, really

I'll do the first one the rest are done in the same way:

Given that the mean is 4 so 4=(5+1+6+3+4+x)/6, 24=19+x, so x=5

Hope this helps

Nikita,

To find the mean of a set of numbers you add the numbers and divide by the number of numbers. So in question 3 you divide by 6 again.

The median is 28 which is the middle of the set of ordered numbers. The ordered set is 21 24 x 30 30 32 the median is the average of the two middle numbers so (x+30)/2=28, so x+30=56, x=26. You should look up the definition of the median to be sure you know how to find it for odd and even sets of numbers.

Good luck on your quiz
