anonymous
  • anonymous
okay let me rewrite that 17+19=? divide that answer by 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok and it = 18
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay without the 1000 the median is 17...so he median increased by one
anonymous
  • anonymous
which means we can eliminate C
anonymous
  • anonymous
and we know the mean will not stay the same because we are adding another huge number
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
Which leaves us with A and D
anonymous
  • anonymous
And just looking at the set of numbers we know the mean will not increase by one (because the median increased by one)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Which gives you?
