If n is the median and m is the mode of the following set of…

If n is the median and m is the mode of the following set of numbers, 2.4, 2.1, 1.6, 2.6, 2.6, 3.7, 2.1, 2.6, then (n, m) is
  • A.
    (2.6, 2.6)
  • B.
    (2.5, 2.6)
  • C.
    (2.6, 2.5)
  • D.
    (2.5, 2.1)
Correct Answer: Option B
Explanation

Arrange the numbers in order, 1.6, 2.1, 2.1| 2.4, 2.6| 2.6, 2.6, 3.7
n = median = (frac{2.4 + 2.6}{2})
= 2.5
m = mode = 2.6
∴ (n, m) = (2.5, 2.6)
