# Find the median of the first nine even natural numbers.

**Solution:**

Given, the data is the first nine even natural numbers.

We have to find the median of the given __data__.

First nine even __natural numbers__ = 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18

Arranging the data in __ascending order__, we get

2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18

When the given data is arranged in ascending (or descending) order, then the middle most observation is the __median__ of the data.

If n is odd, then median = (n+1)/2 th term

Number of observation = 9

Median = (9+1)/2 th term

= 10/2 th term

= 5th term

Therefore, Median = 10
