To find the median, put all numbers into ascending order and work into the middle by crossing off numbers at each end.

If there are a lot of items of data, add 1 to the number of items of data and then divide by 2 to find which item of data will be the median.

## How do I calculate the median?

To find the median, the data should be arranged in order from least to greatest. If there is an even number of items in the data set, then the median is found by taking the mean (average) of the two middlemost numbers.

## How do you work out the median if there are two numbers?

If there is an even number of numbers locate the two middle numbers so that there is an equal number of values to the left and to the right of these two numbers. Step 3: If there is an odd number of numbers, this middle number is the median. If there is an even number of numbers add the two middles and divide by 2.

## What is the median of these numbers?

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. Example 1 : Find the median of the set {2,5,8,11,16,21,30} .
