Set A consists of integers 9, 8, 3, 10, and J; Set B consists of integers 2, 5, 0, 7, 6, and T. If R is the median of Set A and W is the mode of set B, and R^W is a factor of 34, what is the value of T if J is negative?
(A) 2
(B) 0
(C) 1
(D) 2
(E) 5
Solution
This problem demonstrates a helpful note about statistics problems – quite often the key to solving a stats problem is something other than stats: number properties, divisibility, algebra, etc. The statistics nature of these problems is often just a way to make a simpler problem look more difficult.
Here, the phrase “factor of 34? should stand out to...

When Al Gore's 'An Inconvenient Truth' earned awards and accolades and demonstrated Global Warming as a humaninduced phenomenon, not many scientists looked beyond the research papers from 'US Global Change Research Program'.
