The answer my friend is 21 and 14. But knowing that isn't the point. knowing how to figure it out is the point. So, don't just put the answer on your homework paper. Figure out how to solve the problem.

Here's a start.

x + y = 35

x - y = 7 or x=7+y

therefore (7+y)+y = 35

your turn.

### What is the mean if you have an even number of numbers?

It is calculated the same way as if there were an odd number of
numbers:
mean = sum of all the numbers ÷ how many numbers there are
The median however is calculated slightly differently. After the
numbers have been sorted into order, then:
If there is an odd number of numbers
The median is the middle one which is the ((number_of_numbers +
1)÷2)th one.
eg if there are 15 numbers this is the ((15+1)÷2)th = 8th
number.
If there is an even number of numbers
The median is given by the mean of the middle two numbers.
eg if there are 20 numbers, then the median is the mean of the
(20÷2)th = 10th and the (20÷2+1)th = 11th numbers, ie the median is
(10th number + 11th number)÷2

### What is a median in a set of numbers?

If its a odd set of numbers then the median will be (n+1/2)th
term.
where,
n=set of numbers like
2,4,5 then the median will be (3+1/2)th term=2nd term=4.
therefore the median is 4
And if its a even set of numbers like
1,4,7,9,6,8 then the median will be the (sum of mid
numbers/2)
7+9/2=8
therefore the median is 8
