In the following list of numbers, the integer n appears n times in the list for 1<= n <= 200

 

1,2,2,3,3,3,4,4,4,4,5,5,5,5,......,200,200,200

 

.What is the median of the numbers in this list?

So the first step is to find what is 1+2+3+4+...+199+200 you can do that by having pairs of 201 so there are 100 pairs and 201x100=20100 and so there are 20100 numbers in the list.

 

The second step is to find the sum

 

and the third step is to divide the sum by the umbers. Use these hints!

 

As ever,

Hi,

I think that is the mean, not median smiley

ProblemSolver is right, that would be mean, not median. Also, it is suspicious this is the exact same resposne (down to the same spelling mistakes) as the response given to the exact same question posted earlier by AnswerMachine:

Yup, seems like this guy is solving more advanced questions than he asks and he is plagiarizing other people's answers to build rep.

Hi Technoblade,

 

You have already had your hand slapped by MPS and Why, and they are right, you should not take the credit for other people's answers.

BUT

I am pleased that you are showing an interest here. 

If you find an answer like you did here, post a link to it.  I'd be more than happy to give you a point for that.  

Finding previous answers is a skill in itself.  If you learn from that answer then better still. 

Don't be discouraged,  just don't plagiarize and you will fit in here just fine.   laugh
