That's my input for now :)

I havent got a clue about the answer, but maybe someone on here could provide the answer and also explain how they got it, that way the kid would understand. Teachers dont always explain things properly

how about they do it them selfs?Yes thats what I was hoping for:thumbsup:

how about they do it them selfs?nice avi .......... u gonna get raped

15 * 5 gives you the total of the numbers = 75

The median (middle one) of those 5 numbers is 16:

75 - 16 = 59.

Range of 5 means that there are only a 5 number gap between the largest and smallest number (Max number - Min number = 5):

Max number could be 21, Min number could be 11.

One possible set is 12 + 13 + 16 + 17 + 17.

That meets all the conditions. Hope that helps.

median, the middle number..

range, diff between lowest and highest

so start with 13, 14,16, 17, 18 = 78..... then trial and error... keeping 16 in the middle..

Thanks......stupidly didnt realise to put 2 of the same number, went into halves....then thought this seems a bit difficult for a year 5! Its been a long time since we did this at school. If only the teachers did have time to explain properly to the children but with a class of 30 it must be hard, plus they seem to know it in class but forget totally when they come home!

plus they seem to know it in class but forget totally when they come home!I think part of the problem is that kids aren't taught/encouraged to take their own notes in class at an early enough age. That, and the notes that they are given don't give a good enough explanation.

(Just my opinion of course) but when I'm writing notes, I tend to write down the key information relating to a topic (in this case, for a maths problem, I would have an example and explain what each part does - especially useful for an equation)

Looking at the questio it doesn't say you cant!

I had 12 13.5 16 16.5 and 17.

I had 12 13.5 16 16.5 and 17.

Fair enough, both answers work and meet criteria - put both down.
