that what I thought too acctualy the unswer is 85 I didn't understand this explanation ;Median refers to the middle number in a set of observations. To find the required number divide the number of integers by 2 to find out how many integers are there after the median, then add that number to the median.<br>When 81 is divided by 2 the quotient is 40.<br>Largest number of the given set of numbers = 40 + 45<br> <span style='paddingleft:255px;'>= 85</span>

no for this one you require all the numbers series then only you can tell exactly otherwise it should be greater than or equal to 45

yeah thats correct it should be 85 only in question it is given 81 consecutive integers it means that first term should be 4540 = 5 and last term should be 45+40 = 85 so largest term is 85
