The Median is the “**center**” of an ordered list of numbers.

## How to Calculate Median Value

To calculate the median, put the numbers in value order and determine the middle.

**Example: find the Median of 11, 2 and 8**

**Solution**

place all the numbers in order:

2, 8, 11

The middle value is 8, so the median is 8.

**Example: How do you find the median given below 4, 13, 6, 5, 21, 24, 31, 27, 50, 28, 112, 16, 56, 20, 29?**

**Solution:**

After placing all digits in order we get:

4, 5, 6, 13, 16, 20, 21, 24, 27, 28, 29, 31, 50, 56, 112

There is 15 number. Our middle number is the 8th number

The middle is 24, so the median is 24.
