The sum of 27 consecutive positive integers is \(3^7\). What is their median?
The sum of 27 conescutive integers is 3^7 or 2187.
We write an equation x+(x+1)+(x+2)+...(x+26)=2187 and solve for x.
The median is x+12, so the median is 68+12=80.
I tried it then realized that the median of a set of consecutive positive integers is equal to the mean of the set of integers so therefore it was:
thanks for helping me get the answer :D
