Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the number exactly in the middle of a sorted list of numbers If you have an even number then it is the average to the 2 middle numbers example: 1 2 3 2 is the median 1 2 3 4 (2+3)/2 = 2.5 is the median remember, *sorted*

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Median is the middle point of a set of numbers. Usually found by taking the first and last numbers (when in chronological order) adding them together and dividing them in half.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@psy you have to be careful, because the average of the min and max does not give you the median: 1 1 2 3 5 its median is 2 but (5+1)/2 = 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you have an odd number of give digits, then the mode is located in the problem. It's when you have an even number that you would have to do the add and divide.
