That's the median. (It is also the 50th percentile.) Exactly half the data lie above the median and half lie below it.

For example, consider the following list of numbers: 4, 2, 6, 7, 3, 8, 9.

Arranging the numbers from least to greatest, we get: 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9.

The number 6 is in the middle, so 6 is the median of the data set. If the number of data points is even and no one number is in the center, you must find the average of the two data points in the middle of the list to determine the median.

Does the median have to be arranged from least to greatest?

The most common definition of the median is that given a set of data values it is the middle value of the data set when it has been arranged in ascending order. So, while the median is the number in the middle of a data set. Sometimes there is no single number in the middle in which case we take the mean of the two middle numbers. Weather you order the values from smallest to largest or largest to smallest, the middle will still be the same, in spite of the common definition using ascending order. For example 1,2,5,6,8 The median is 5. If I write those numbers are 8,6,5,2,1 the 5 is still the middle number in the set. With an even number of data values, such as 1,2,4,6,8,11, the median is the mean of 4 and 6 which is 5. If I write that set from largest to smallest the median is the same. So the median is the middlemost number. In most math classes, students are told to arrange the numbers from smallest to largest, however, you can see that this really makes no difference.

How do you find the median value on a cumulative frequency?

set all you numbers up in order from smallest to largest. then find the middle. if there are two number in the middle, add them up and divide by two. Example: set of numbers - 8,6,3,4,10,15,36 put in order from smallest to largest - 3,4,6,8,10,15,36 now find the middle number - 8 8 is then my median of this sequence

The smallest angle in a triangle is one-half the size of the largest The middle angle measures 25degrees less than the largest Find the measures of the three angles?

Sum of all the angles in the triangle has to be 180 degrees. Let's mark the largest angle as x. Then, smallest angle will be 0.5x and the middle one x-25. x + 0.5x +x - 25 = 180, which is after simplyfying: 2.5x = 205 x = 82 degrees -> the largest angle, x-25 = 57 degrees -> middle one, 0.5x = 41 degrees -> the smallest angle.

What is the smallest country in Southwest Asia and North Africa?

It depends on how you count this.The four smallest countries in the Middle East and North Africa are Lebanon, Cyprus, the State of Palestine, and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (from largest to smallest). Lebanon is the smallest, clearly recognized country that is clearly in the Middle East. Cyprus is the smallest, clearly recognized country in the Middle East region, but there is debate as to whether Cyprus is in the Middle East or in Europe. The State of Palestine is smaller than Cyprus and clearly in the Middle East, but it is not clearly recognized. The Turkish Republic of Cyprus is the smallest, but is not clearly in the Middle East (for the same reasons as Cyprus more generally) and is only recognized by Turkey.
