List \(\)X\(\) and list \(\)Y\(\) each contain \(\)60\(\) numbers. Frequency distributions for each list are given above. The average (arithmetic mean) of the numbers in list \(\)X\(\) is \(\)2.7\(\), and the average of the numbers in list \(\)Y\(\) is \(\)7.1\(\). List \(\)Z\(\) contains \(\)120\(\) numbers: the \(\)60\(\) numbers in list \(\)X\(\) and the \(\)60\(\) numbers in list \(\)Y\(\).

Quantity A |
Quantity B |

The average of the \(\)120\(\) numbers in list \(\)Z\(\) | The median of the \(\)120\(\) numbers in list \(\)Z\(\) |

7. In the course of an experiment, \(\)95\(\) measurements were recorded, and all of the measurements were integers. The \(\)95\(\) measurements were then grouped into \(\)7\(\) measurement intervals. The graph above shows the frequency distribution of the \(\)95\(\) measurements by measurement interval.

Quantity A |
Quantity B |

The average (arithmetic mean) of the \(\)95\(\) measurements | The median of the \(\)95\(\) measurements |
