Best Answer

The median is the middle number of any given set when they are in order, least to greatest. If there is an even number of values, the median is the average of the middle two.

Ex. (10, 17, 20, 45, 68)

The median is 20.

You sort a set of numbers in ascending order (or descending order, it doesn't really matter), and pick the number in the middle. If there are two numbers in the middle (the size of the set is even), you take the average of both. Examples:{1, 3, 5, 10, 100} - The set is already sorted. The number in the middle is 5, so that's the median.

{-1, 2, 4, 10, 12, 1000} - The set is already sorted. The two numbers in the middle are 4 and 10; the average of both is 7, so that's the median.
