easy question NO2 from disclosure

Post Tue Sep 26, 2006 7:34 am
Could anyone please give me some example to understand this question?? I am confused..

Which of the following procedures is alwasys equivalent to adding 5 numbers and then deviding the sum by 5?

I. Multiplying the 5 numbers and then finding the 5th root of the product.

II. Adding the 5 numbers, doubling the sum, and then moving the decimal point one place to the left.

III. Ordering the 5 numbers numerically and then selecting the middle number.


A) None
B) I only
C) II only
D) III only
E) I and III


The answer is C

Thank you again Cooddue...

I thought 5th root of product is like this (see attached), but actually that means "make 5 sets of factors"

Yes, there are 22222 and 33333.

Thank you!

Thank you so much for your help.

it becomes very clear but one part... (sorry very basic)

as for the method 1
the product of the example 5 numbers: 4 8 9 27 1 will be 7776, and how come 5th root of 7776 is 6??

Thank you...

method 1 - suppose we have numbers 4 8 9 27 1;so fifth root of product is 6

but adding them all then divide by 5 is not equal to 6

method 2-suppose a b c d e are any 5 inteers so sum is a+ b+ c+ d +e
and doubling it is 2(a+ b+ c+ d +e) the divide by 10 is {a+ b+ c+ d +e}/5

method 3-
again take 4 8 9 27 1 so middle no. is 8


hence u c only second is correct
