when you have an even amount of numbers while trying to find the median, you first find the two numbers that are at the median and then take all the numbers between them and find the median of that. if that amount of digits is also even, then you must have a decimal median.

What happens when you try to get the median and there is an even amount of factors and you add them up and divide but you come out with an decimal number?

For a median, one will only be dealing with one or two numbers at the middle of a set of values.Where there is one middle number in a set of data (an odd number of values), that middle number is used as the median.For example, the median of the set {1, 3, 5, 7, 9} is 5.Where there are two middle numbers in a set of data (an even number of values, the average of the two numbers in the middle represents the median.For example, the median of the set {2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7} is the average of 4 and 5, or 4.5.

To find the mean, you all them all up and divide by how many ever there are. To find the median, you put them in order and the middle one is the median. If there are an even number of data, you take the two in the middle, add them together, then divide by 2.
