For example, suppose the 5 given numbers are 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10

What is the median of 41 23 17 47 25 34 23?

25. you put all of the numbers in order from least to greatest, then cross off the first then last then the second then the sixth and so on until you have one number in the middle. if there are two numbers, in this case there are not, but if there were two you would divide the lower number by the higher number and that would be your median. remember, median means middle. Good Luck on the math! :)

How do you calculate median?

You don't really calculate it, the median is the middle number.But it has to be in order first before you find it.Say you have a set of data like this;5,8,4,3,6,8,9,2,6,4,3,7First you put in order.2,3,3,4,4,5,6,6,7,8,8,9Next you divide the number of data by two.12/2= 6So your sixth number would be the median, but as it's a even number it is the sixth and seventh number.So the answer would be 5.5(the middle value)
