Starting with the data values 70 and 100, add three data values to the sample so that the mean is 86, the median is 82, and the mode is 82. Please show all of your work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1actually....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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then it says the median is 82...so what do you think should you do?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1theoretically, it should look something like 70+82+82+x+100/5= 66.8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1except... it says the mean is 86 so it should be (72 + 82 + 82 + x + 100)/5 = 86

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ohh. So, then how do you find that x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that should be \[\frac{70 + 82 + 82 + x + 100}5 = 86\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to solve for x, you should multiply both sides by 5 first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so have 5*86, which comes to 430, and I believe we can subtract the original 334 by 430, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1awesome. That missing number would come to be 96. Thank you!
