    the median is the middle term is a set of data, eg if the data was 7, 393, 3, -6, 88, 3, 75, 5, 5, 5, 0, 1, 4, first we sorting the data into order ... -6, 0, 1, 3, 3, 4, 5, 5, 5, 7, 75, 88, 393, | the median is now in the middle: 5

    because there is an even number of elements this time, there will be two 'middle' terms: say a and b then median is now (a + b) / 2
