The fact that two of the four numbers are identical in no way changes the way you would find the median.

When finding the median of a set of data, you must sort the data from highest to lowest (or lowest to highest). The data point right smack in the middle is the median. If there is an even number of data points -- as is the case here -- you must take the average of the two points in the middle.

Let's say these are your data: 10, 10, 6, 3. The median is the average of 10 and 6, or 8.

If your data is 10, 6, 6, 3, then the median is 6.

If it's 10, 6, 3, 3, the median is 4.5 (the average of 6 and 3).
