Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.213/2 = 6.5 since it has a decimal on it .... we round up to 7 the median is the 7th leaf

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1why do u cross only those out for ?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.24  2 4 ... 2 leaf 5  1 3 ... 4 leaf 6  1 5 ... 6 leaf 7  0 3 8 ^^ 7th leaf lets go with 70 as the median

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if we had just written these out, itd be the 7th number 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 42 44 51 53 61 65 70

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but dont u cross the top 2 and top bottom so it would be the 6 row

rebecca1233

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in ur example where u crossed things out im lookin at the stem side u cross 2 and cross 2 at bottom so its in row 6

rebecca1233

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1thats where im confused

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i dont go with the crossing things out method ... i simply count

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.21 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.242 43 45 46 would stem and leaf as: 4  2 3 5 6 its just a way of representing the data points

rebecca1233

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so u just cross em out but 7 is still at the bottom..idk im confused lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2lets 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 \[\cancel{42}~ 44~ 51~ 53~ 61~ 65~ 70~73~78~83~85~87~\cancel{89}\] \[\cancel{42}~ \cancel{44}~ 51~ 53~ 61~ 65~ 70~73~78~83~85~\cancel{87}~\cancel{89}\] \[\cancel{42}~ \cancel{44}~ \cancel{51}~ 53~ 61~ 65~ 70~73~78~83~\cancel{85}~\cancel{87}~\cancel{89}\] \[\cancel{42}~ \cancel{44}~ \cancel{51}~ \cancel{53~ 61~ 65}~ 70~\cancel{73~78~83}~\cancel{85}~\cancel{87}~\cancel{89}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2take the stem, and attach it to each leaf 7  0 3 8 represents: 70 73 78
