# The median of the data 78, 56, 22, 34, 45, 54, 39, 68, 54, 84 is

a. 45

b. 49.5

c. 54

d. 56

**Solution:**

Let us arrange the given observation in ascending order

22, 34, 39, 45, 54, 54, 56, 68, 78 and 84

Total observation n = 10

As n is even, let us use the median formula

Median = [(n/2)th observation + (n/2 + 1)th observation]/2

Substituting the value

= [(10/2)th observation + (10/2 + 1)th observation]/2

= [5th observation + 6th observation]/2

So we get

= [54 + 54]/2

= 108/2

= 54

Therefore, the median of the data is 54.
