    To find the median of a steam and leave diagram is to cross out each number going in a diagonal form. Thats a bit confusing to understand so im going to include a drawing of what I mean. |dw:1363112492216:dw|

    13/2 = 6.5 since it has a decimal on it .... we round up to 7 the median is the 7th leaf

    1 3 are 2 different leafs. stem | leafs S | L1 L2 L3 L4 ... a leaf is usually a unit value. a stem is usually a base 10 value

    lets list your numbers instead of leafing them ok? \[42~ 44~ 51~ 53~ 61~ 65~ 70~73~78~83~85~87~89\] one way to find the median is to find the number in the center .. we can do that by crossing off positions in a symmetric manner \[\cancel{42}~ 44~ 51~ 53~ 61~ 65~ 70~73~78~83~85~87~\cancel{89}\] \[\cancel{42}~ \cancel{44}~ 51~ 53~ 61~ 65~ 70~73~78~83~85~\cancel{87}~\cancel{89}\] \[\cancel{42}~ \cancel{44}~ \cancel{51}~ 53~ 61~ 65~ 70~73~78~83~\cancel{85}~\cancel{87}~\cancel{89}\] \[\cancel{42}~ \cancel{44}~ \cancel{51}~ \cancel{53~ 61~ 65}~ 70~\cancel{73~78~83}~\cancel{85}~\cancel{87}~\cancel{89}\]
