problem: The arithmetic mean of five positive integers is 30. What is the greated possible value of their median?
My answer: i got 48 since i did 1+1+48+50+50. can anyone verify??
Perfect, that's what I get too!
What about 1 + 1 + 49 + 49 + 50 ?
That answer is wrong.
Please explain how that answer is wrong
(sorry if I am missing something very basic)
I do not think that there is anything wrong with Geno's answer. Thanks Geno.
