<p>the question:</p>

<p>Which of the following lists of numbers must the average (mean) of the numbers be 20 percent of the sum of the numbers?</p>

<p>I. v and w

II. v, w, x, and y

III. v, w, x, y, and z</p>

<p>a. none

b. I

c. II

d. III

e. II and III</p>

<p>The answers from the CB say the correct choice is D (set III). However, upon closer examination, if the sum of the numbers of set III is 0 (e.g. {-2,-1,0,1,2}) then the arithmetic mean is the same number, 0, not 20% of the number, making A correct (or at least so I thought).</p>
