# The median of the data 40, 50, 99, 68, 98, 60, 94 is

(a) 40

(b) 60

(c) 68

(d) 99

**Solution:**

Given, the data is 40, 50, 99, 68, 98, 60, 94

We have to find the median of the given __data__.

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

Arranging the data in __ascending order__, we get

40, 50, 60, 68, 94, 98, 99

Number of observations, n = 7

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

Median = (7 + 1)/2 th term

= 8/2 th term

= 4th term

4th term = 68

Therefore, the median is 68.
