How many scores were greater than the median score but less than the mean score? A. None B. One C. Two D. Three E. Four OA=B Source: GMAT Prep We need to determine how many of the scores given were greater than the median score but less than the mean score. Letâ€™s first calculate the mean (or average): Avg = sum/quantity Avg = (40 + 45 + 45 + 50 + 50 + 60 + 70 + 75 + 95 + 100)/10 Avg = 630/10 = 63 Next we can determine the median. Since we have 10 numbers, the median is the average of the two middle numbers, when ordered from least to greatest. Median = (50 + 60)/2 Median = 55 We need to determine how many numbers are greater than 55 and less than 63. The only number to fits that criterion is 60.
