### What if the data set has a even amount of numbers and the median was between the same numbers?

The median of a set of data is the "middle" value. Whenever
there is an even number of values in a data set, you take the
middle two numbers, add them together, and divide by two. For cases
when the two middle numbers happen to be the same, you still add
them up and divide by two. The key point is just that the answer
will be the same as both the numbers.
