whats the median


The median of a finite list of numbers can be found by arranging all the numbers from smallest to greatest.

If there is an odd number of numbers, the middle one is picked. For example, consider the set of numbers:

1, 3, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9

This set contains seven numbers. The median is the fourth of them, which is 6.

If there are an even number of observations, then there is no single middle value; the median is then usually defined to be the mean of the two middle values.] For example, in the data set:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9

The median is the mean of the middle two numbers: this is (4 + 5) รท 2, which is 4.5
