If $S = {0,4,5,2,11,8}$, how much greater than the median of the numbers in S is the mean of the numbers in S?

S = 0, 4, 5, 2, 11, 8

Mean = (0 + 4 + 5 + 2 + 11 + 8)/6 = 30/6 = 5

Rearranging the numbers gives: 0, 2, 4, 5, 8, 11

Median is the middle term = (4 + 5)/2 = 4.5

Mean - median = 5 - 4.5 = 0.5

Therefore the mean is 0.5 greater than the median
