# How to find the median of a set of numbers

Median of a set of numbers is the middle number in the set. If the set has even numbers median is the average of the middle two numbers.

## Answer: To find the median of a set of numbers(n) of Odd entries : [(n-1)/2 +1]th number and Even entries : [(n/2)th number + (n/2 + 1)th number] / 2

## Explanation:

In order to find the median of a set of numbers, we will first have to know the total count of numbers that we have.

Next, we arrange these numbers in an ascending form.

Now, suppose we have odd number of total entries. In this case, the [ (n-1)/2 +1 ]th number will be our median.

But suppose we have even number of total entries. In this case, the median will be [(n/2)th number + (n/2 + 1)th number] / 2.

### Thus, to find the median of a set of numbers(n) of odd entries : [(n-1)/2 +1]th number and Even entries : [(n/2)th number + (n/2 + 1)th number] / 2
