Here is the worksheet I provided you on Friday. Please answer the questions in a comment. You can also ask questions about anything you need help on here.

Good Luck

1. State 7 prices, where the median is $3.00, the highest price is $20.00 and the lowest price is $1.00.
2. The mean mark on 4 tests is 78%. What mark is needed on the next test to increase the mean to 80%?

3. Julie buys a book, a game, a puzzle, and a piece of computer software at the book fair. The computer software cost $10. Julie claims that the average price of the items she bought is $2.50. Can she be correct? Why or Why not.

4.
