What Is the Median of 6, 7, 4, 8, 12, 2, 1 and 2 ?

What Is the Median of 6, 7, 4, 8, 12, 2, 1 and 2 ?

The median of 6, 7, 4, 8, 12, 2, 1 and 2 is 5. The median is defined as the middle value in a set of numbers. If there are an even number of values, the median is the average of the two middle values.

To find the median of the set of numbers, the numbers must be rearranged from smallest to greatest. Rewriting 6, 7, 4, 8, 12, 2, 1 and 2 in order from smallest to greatest yields 1, 2, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 12. The two middle values of this data set are 6 and 4. The average of those numbers is 5.
