    First, divide the data into two halves by getting the middle number. So, what is the middle number?

    You're right, 35 is the middle number. Now, we have divided our piece of data into two pieces. Now divide the upper part of the data into two pieces. If there are two middle numbers, find the mean for both of them.

    Remember, if there are two middle numbers, you have to find the mean of the two numbers.
