Question

The table above shows the masses, in kilograms (kg), and lengths, in centimeters (cm), of the largest known specimens of the 9 most massive types of turtles and tortoises. The mean mass of the 9 turtles and tortoises is approximately 331kg. The mass of the Aldabra giant tortoise is closest to the mean mass. Which of the following is true about the length of the Aldabra giant tortoise in relation to the median length of the 9 turtles and tortoises?

- It is the median length.
- It is longer than the median length
- It is longer than the median length.
- It is shorter than the median length.

## The correct answer is: It is longer than the median length.

### the raw data of lengths are {210, 213, 140, 187, 150, 81, 100, 100, 95}

Step 1: arrange in ascending order

Ascending order of lengths = {81, 95, 100, 100, 140, 150, 187, 210, 213}

Step 2:- find median length

As no. of elements = 9 (4 + 1 + 4) .so, 5th element is median length

Median length = 140 cm

The Length of the Aldabra giant tortoise is 150 cm.

So, The Length of the Aldabra giant tortoise is 10 cm longer than the median length .

For part of a trip, a car traveled directly away from its starting point at a constant speed. The graph shows the car's distance from its starting point, in miles, for times from 2.0 hours to 2.5 hours after the start of the trip. What was the speed of the car, in miles per hour, during this part of the trip?

Distance divided by time is the formula for speed. Both meters per second (m/s) and kilometers per hour (km/hr) are used to measure speed.

The amount of distance traveled at a given velocity is shown by a speed formula. The measurement of speed is the distance covered in a predetermined period. The car traveled directly away from its starting point at a constant speed can be determined by knowing the distance it traveled and the time it took. The time graph separation is a line graph that shows the results of the distance versus time analysis. It is easy to create a distance-time graph. To begin, take a piece of graph paper and draw two parallel lines that meet at the letter O. The X-axis is the horizontal line, and the Y-axis is the vertical line. A graphic that shows the distance traveled in a specified amount of time is known as a distance-time graph. In other words, it provides information regarding the vehicle's speed over a specific distance. The graph makes the numerical statistics for time and distance easier to interpret. The graph also shows how far the car has traveled at any given moment. Finding the changing speed at different distances can be done with the help of a distance-time graph.
