Median =

= 66/2

= 33

### 15, 6, 16, 8, 22, 21, 9, 18, 25

Solution:

Ascending order sequence of the numbers :

6, 8, 9, 15, 16, 18, 21, 22, 25

Total number of terms, supposedly, n = 9 (odd)

Median =

= 5th term

= 16

### 41, 43, 127, 99, 71, 92, 71, 58, 57

Solution:

Ascending order sequence of the numbers :

41, 43, 57, 58, 71, 71, 92, 99, 127

Total number of terms, supposedly, n = 9 (odd)

Median =

= 5th term

= 71

### 25, 34, 31, 23, 22, 26, 35, 29, 20, 32

Solution:

Ascending order sequence of the numbers :

20, 22, 23, 25, 26, 29, 31, 32, 34, 35

Total number of terms, supposedly, n = 10 (even)

Median =

= 55/2

= 27.5

### 12, 17, 3, 14, 5, 8, 7, 15

Solution:

Ascending order sequence of the numbers :

3, 5, 7, 8, 12, 14, 15, 17

Total number of terms, supposedly, n = 8 (even)

Median =

= 20/2

= 10

### 92, 35, 67, 85, 72, 81, 56, 51, 42, 69

Solution:

Ascending order sequence of the numbers :

35, 42, 51, 56, 67, 69, 72, 81, 85, 92

Total number of terms, supposedly, n = 10 (even)

Median =

= 136/2

= 68

### Question 9. Numbers 50, 42, 35, 2x + 10, 2x – 8, 12, 11, 8 are written in descending order and their median is 25, find x.

Solution:

Ascending order sequence of the numbers :

8, 11, 12, 2x – 8, 2x+10, 35, 42, 50

Total number of terms, supposedly, n = 8 (even)

Given,

Median = 25

Median =

48 = 4x

x = 12

### Question 10. Find the median of the following observations : 46, 64, 87, 41, 58, 77, 35, 90, 55, 92, 33.If 92 is replaced by 99 and 41 by 43 in the new data, find the new median?

Solution:

Ascending order sequence of the numbers :

33, 35, 41, 46, 55, 58, 64, 77, 87, 90, 92

n = 11 (odd)

Median =

= 6th term

= 58

If we replace 92 by 99 and 41 and 43, then the new sequence of numbers are :

33, 35, 43, 46, 55, 58, 64, 77, 87, 90, 99

New Median =

= 6th term

= 58

### Question 11. Find the median of the following data : 41, 43, 127, 99, 61, 92, 71, 58, 57. If 58 is replaced by 85, what will be the new median?

Solution:

Arranging the data given in ascending order :

41, 43, 57, 58, 61, 71, 92, 99, 127

Number of terms, supposedly n = 9 (odd)

Median =

= 5th term

= 61

On replacing the value 58 by 85, we get,

41, 43, 57, 61, 71, 85, 92, 99, 127

New Median =

= 5th term

= 71

### Question 12. The weights (in kg) of 15 students are : 31, 35, 27, 29, 32, 43, 37, 41, 34, 28, 36, 44, 45, 42,30. Find the median in weight. If the 44 kg is replaced by 446kg and 27 kg by 25kg. Find the new median.

Solution :

Arranging the data in ascending order,

27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 34, 35, 36, 37, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45

Total number of terms = 15 (n = odd)

Median =

= 8th term

= 35 kg

On replacing 44 kg by 46 kg and 27 kg by 25 kg respectively, we get,

25, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 34, 35, 36, 37, 41, 42, 43, 45,46

New Median =

= 8th term

= 35 kg

### 29, 32, 48, 50, x, x + 2, 72, 78, 84, 95

Solution :

Given,

Median = 63

Total number of terms, supposedly n = 10 (even)

Now,

Median =

63 = x+1

x = 62
