- phi

the 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*

- anonymous

Median 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.

- phi

@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

You're right. Sorry, I thought it was always true.

- phi

but
4 8 6 8 10 12 14 16 18
had a middle number

- anonymous

so i would get 11 right?

- anonymous

no 16

- phi

I repeat
4 8 6 8 10 12 14 16 18
has a single middle number (4 below it and 4 above it)

- anonymous

yer riht ha lol its 10 my bad

- anonymous

If 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.

- phi

@psy you mean "mean" (not mode)

- phi

@kat yes, median is 10 (counting can be sooo tricky...)

- anonymous

yes lol haha

- anonymous

No I meant median instead of mode.
