A set of eleven different numbers

To find:
Which of the following will not affect the value of the median

Solution:
Topic(s): Statistics

If the eleven different numbers were to be arranged in order, the median would be the 6th number.

We would have to determine which of the answers would not change the median.

(A) Doubling each number. (The median is also doubled)

(B) Increasing each number by 10. (The median is also increased by 10)

(C) Increasing the smallest number only. (The median would be changed if the smallest number was increased such that it becomes bigger than the 6th number)

(D) Decreasing the largest number only. (The median would be changed if the largest number was decreased such that it becomes smaller than the 6th number)

(E) Increasing the largest number only. ü (Increasing the largest number would not affect the median)

20. Correct answer: (B)

Given:
The figure
SBT is one quarter of a circle with center R and radius 6
Length plus width of rectangle ABCR = 8

To find:
Perimeter of the shaded region

Solution:
Topic(s): Circumference of circle

Length of arc ST =

Given AR + RC = length + width = 8

SR + RT = 6 + 6 = 12

SA + CT = SR + RT – (AR + RC) = 12 – 8 = 4

AC = BR = radius of circle = 6

Perimeter of shaded region = 6 + 4 + 3π = 10 + 3π

Answer: (B) 10 + 3π
