# Median

It is the middle value in the list of numbers. Can you find the median of these numbers?

What is the median of the following numbers?

**Example:**

Find the mean of the following: 1, 2, 1, 5, 5

Step 1: Sort the list → 1, 1, 2, 5, 5

Step 2: Count the number of numbers listed → 5

Step 3: There are five numbers listed, so the middle one will be the (5+1)/2 = 6/2 = 3

^{rd}number. Therefore, the median is 2.

Note: If an odd number of numbers are listed, pick the middle number. Otherwise, find the average of the middle two numbers.
