    If you have an odd number of data points, sort them into ascending order and take the middle one. That's the median. If you have an even number of data points, sort them into ascending order, take the two middle ones, add them, and divide by 2. That's the median.

    Seems to be some sort of echo in here, wouldn't you agree, @Aureyliant?
