**A patient's temperature was recorded in degrees Fahrenheit every hour for 8 hr. The temperatures in Fahrenheit were 99.0°, 99.2°, 98.7°, 99.3°, 99.7°, 98.6°, 100.0° and 99.0°. Which of the following is the median temperature?**

99.5°F

99.1°F

99.2°F

99°F

*Correct Answer : B*

The median temperature can be found by organizing the temperature values from the smallest to the largest value as follows:

98.6, 98.7, 99.0, 99.0, 99.2, 99.3, 99.7, 100.0

### (for an even set of numbers, Median = frac{(frac{n}{2})th observation + (frac{n}{2} + 1) th observation}{2})

From the data set above, there are 8 temperature values. The median is the temperature value in the middle position, which falls between the (frac{n}{2} th) and ((frac{n}{2} + 1) th) position. Here N=8 and median is found as:

(frac{(frac{n}{2})th + (frac{n}{2} + 1) th}{2} = )(frac{(frac{8}{2})th + (frac{8}{2} + 1) th }{2} = 4.5th position)

The element in the 4.5th position is the average of the 4th and 5th element.

(frac{99.0 + 99.2}{2} = 99.1)

Thus 99.1 is the median temperature.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

In this problem, we take the triangle as a right-angled triangle and label it as follows:

From the Pythagoras theorem A2 + B2= C2, we can look for a combination of A and B that when the squares of A and B are summed give a square of 13. Mathematically,

But C=13 inches

If we take A=5 inches and B=12 inches, then

Next, we take A=2.5 inches, B=6 inches

Next, we take A=2.5 inches, B=4 inches

*6.25+16=169*

*22.25≠169*

Taking A=5 inches and B=8 inches

From the above computation, the combination of A=5 inches and B=12 inches give a triangle with a hypothenuse of 13 inches.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

We convert the given weight in pounds to ounces and find total weight. 1 pound=16 ounces, which we interpret as

Or

Percentages always add up to 100%. If we let x be the percent of graduates working for jobs unrelated to law, then

74%+3%+2%+x=100%

79%+x=100%

Subtract 79% from both sides of the equation

79%-79%+x=100%

x=100%-79%

x=21%

So, the number of graduates working for jobs unrelated to law is 21%.

### Correct Answer is D
