A sample of 26 offshore oil workers took part in a simulated escape exercise, resulting in the accompanying data on time (sec) to complete the escape:

 389 351 354 361 379 423 321 396 403 374 375 371 362 367 365 327 338 395 393 369 378 359 353 409 332 398

I have uploaded a picture with the full problem. I need help in the 2 questions I got wrong. On the picture the table is already set in order from smaller to bigger.

By how much could this value be decreased without affecting the value of the sample median? (Enter ∞ if there is no limit to the amount.) I have no idea on how to calculate that.

The other question is all the way down. I know I have to conver the seconds to minutes. I got 370.85 / 60 = 6.1695 which if I round to 2 decimal places as asked by the problem I should be getting 6.17 minutes. I was marked wrong. Why?

Step 1

(c)

Explanation:

The sample median is changed when the value is decreased less than the value 370. Here, the value 423 is greater than the value 370. Hence, the value 423 could be d...
