Median is finding the center of a line of some values. The values have to list in ascending order.

When there are an odd amount of numbers: the median is the middle number.

Example: find the Median of {12, 3, 5}. Put them in order: {3, 5, 12}. The middle number is 5, so the median is 5.

When there are an even amount of numbers: There will be two numbers in the middle; the median in this case is the mean (average) of these two.

Example: find the Median of {3, 5, 7, 12, 13, 14, 21, 23, 23, 23, 23, 29, 40, 56}. There are now 14 numbers and so we have a pair of middle numbers and the middle numbers are 21 and 23. To find median: (21 + 23) ÷ 2 = 22. So the Median in this example is 22.

An even number can be divided by 2 evenly. An odd number will have a remainder of 1 when divided by 2.

How do you find the median of an even number?

Do you mean in a sequence of numbers? ex. 24, 65, 32, 15, 45, 78 You would take the two middle numbers which are 32 & 15 Add them together, you will get 47 Then divide that nu

List the numbers in order, cross out the first number, the last number, the second first number then the second last number, and so on. The only number left is your median. H

What is the difference between and even number and odd number?

If you divide an even number by two the result will be a whole number, e.g. 8 ÷ 2 = 4 . If you divide an odd number by two the result will be a floating point number, e.g. 9

How do you find median of even amount of numbers?

You take the two middle numbers and find their mean. for example: if you have the numbers: 4, 7, 16, 23, 27, 29, 34, 45 Then take the two middle numbers ( which in this case a
