have you tried trial and error?
yes it just confuses me a bit more
actually....it's not much of "error"... you know the start is 70 and the last is 100...then there are three blanks in the middle 70 _ _ _ 100 right?

yes
then it says the median is 82...so what do you think should you do?
theoretically, it should look something like 70+82+82+x+100/5= 66.8
exactly
except... it says the mean is 86 so it should be (72 + 82 + 82 + x + 100)/5 = 86
ohh. So, then how do you find that x?
that should be \[\frac{70 + 82 + 82 + x + 100}5 = 86\]
to solve for x, you should multiply both sides by 5 first
so have 5*86, which comes to 430, and I believe we can subtract the original 334 by 430, right?
right
awesome. That missing number would come to be 96. Thank you!
right
