## How do you find the median of 12 numbers?

Add up all of the numbers and divide by the number of numbers in the data set. The median is the central number of a data set. Arrange data points from smallest to largest and locate the central number. This is the median.

**What is the median of the set of numbers?**

middle number

The median of a set of numbers is the middle number in the set (after the numbers have been arranged from least to greatest) — or, if there are an even number of data, the median is the average of the middle two numbers.

### What is a median of 12?

To remember the definition of a median, just think of the median of a road, which is the middlemost part of the road. In the problem above, 12 is the median: it is the number that is halfway into the set. There are two children older than 12 and two children younger than 12. Let’s look at some more examples.

**What is median mode?**

The median is the middle value in a list ordered from smallest to largest. The mode is the most frequently occurring value on the list.

#### What is median answer?

The median is the middle number in a sorted, ascending or descending, list of numbers and can be more descriptive of that data set than the average. If there is an odd amount of numbers, the median value is the number that is in the middle, with the same amount of numbers below and above.

**How do you find the median in an odd set of numbers?**

Count how many numbers you have. If you have an odd number, divide by 2 and round up to get the position of the median number. If you have an even number, divide by 2. Go to the number in that position and average it with the number in the next higher position to get the median.

## What is the difference between the mean and the median?

The mean is the same as the average value of a data set and is found using a calculation. Add up all of the numbers and divide by the number of numbers in the data set. The median is the central number of a data set. Arrange data points from smallest to largest and locate the central number. This is the median.

**What is the median of the numbers in ascending order?**

In ascending order the numbers are 3, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 11, 15, 19, 27. There are 10 total numbers, so the 5th and 6th numbers are used to figure the median. (8+9)/2 = 8.5 If there were 9 numbers in the series rather than 10 you would take the 5th number and would not need to average the 2 middle numbers.

### What is the median x ~ value of the data set?

The median x ~ is the data value separating the upper half of a data set from the lower half. If there are 2 data values in the middle the median is the mean of those 2 values. For the data set 1, 1, 2, 5, 6, 6, 9 the median is 5. For the data set 1, 1, 2 , 6, 6, 9 the median is 4.

**How do you find the mode and median of two numbers?**

If there are 2 numbers in the middle, the median is the average of those 2 numbers. The mode is the number in a data set that occurs most frequently. Count how many times each number occurs in the data set. The mode is the number with the highest tally.
