What is the value of the least possible integer in this set? A. -10 B. -6 C. -5 D. 5 E. 10 Range = biggest - smallest Smallest = biggest - range Since the range = 60, we get: Smallest = biggest - 60 To minimize the smallest integer, we must minimize the biggest integer. Since the median of the 51 distinct integers = 30, there must be 25 integers above 30, with the other 25 integers below 30. Implication: The least possible value for the biggest integer = 30+25 = 55. Substituting biggest = 55 into the blue equation above, we get: Smalest = 55-60 = -5. The correct answer is C. _________________ Mitch Hunt Private Tutor for the GMAT and GRE GMATGuruNY@gmail.com If you find one of my posts helpful, please take a moment to click on the "UPVOTE" icon.

What is the value of the least possible integer in this set? A. -10 B. -6 C. -5 D. 5 E. 10 OA C Since the median is 30 and there are 51 terms, we see that 25 terms must be below the median and 25 above. So the least value of the largest number in the set is 30 + 25 = 55. Since the range is 60, the value of the smallest number in the set is 55 - 60 = -5.
