No because the mean is the highest numeral and the median is the middle numeral of the set of numbers so it is tecnictly impossible, but if you are using decimals, the median could get pretty close to the mean, but never higher.

If you order the numbers from the higher to the lowest, the median is the number separating the lower half of the numbers from the higher half of the numbers in the set. If you have an odd number of elements in the set then the median is in the middle of this descending ordered numbers. If you have an even number of elements then, in order to determine the median, you calculate the mean of the two middle values.

Mean is the average: Add all the numbers in a set and divide by the number of numbers. Median is if you wrote the numbers from largest to smallest, it would be the middle number. Mode is the Most common number.

The mean and the median are both involved with a set of numbers. The mean refers to the average of the numbers. The median refers to the middle number of the numbers

median is the middle of something, usually a set of numbers

The median is the value which seperates the upper and lower half of a set of numbers. The mean is the average value between two or more numbers. In calculating a set of numbers, specifically a set of averages, the median may indeed be effected by the mean.

One set of numbers for which this is true is {8}.

If you order the numbers by size, it is the mean of the third and fourth numbers. Median = (N3 + N4)/2

Any set of numbers can have only one mean and only one median but it can have as many modes as it has values.

The median of the set of data does not have to be close in value to the mean. First of all, what is the median? The median is the middle number between a set of numbers. So if you are asked what the median of a set of numbers is.... put the set of numbers in order from lowest in value to highest value. Example.... 1, 2, 3, 45, 100, 1010, 1020. In this example, what is the median, or the middle number? It's ... 45! If you want to find the mean ... add all of the numbers and divide the sum by the AMOUNT of numbers there are in the set.... the sum of the set is 2181.. and there are 7 numbers in the set. The mean is 2181 / 7 = 311. 57. You can see that 311 is not close in value to 45.

No because the mean is the highest numeral and the median is the middle numeral of the set of numbers so it is tecnictly impossible, but if you are using decimals, the median could get pretty close to the mean, but never higher.

To find a median, put the set of numbers in least to greatest. The number in the middle = median.

mean~ all the numbers in the data added together divided by the number of data. The mean is the same as the average. median~ the exact middle of the set of data. Example: 1,1,2,2, the median is 1.5 mean- the average median- the middle number in a set of numbers in a group.Example of Median-1,3,5,7,9,4,5 (put them in order and list them from least to greatest)1,3,4,5,5,7,9the median is 5!
