# 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 two middle numbers.

## Answer: To find the median of a set of numbers (n) of odd entries : [{(n-1)/2} +1]th number and of even entries : [(n/2)th number + (n/2 + 1)th number] / 2.

Let's see how to find the median of the given data.

**Explanation:**

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

Next, we arrange these numbers in an ascending form.

Now, suppose we have an 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.
