STATISTICS: How do you find the EXACT median?
1, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5
reps
edit: yes it's 3 in the above example but (3+3)/2 is NOT how you find EXACT MEDIAN
example,
1, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4
the exact median is 2.83

To find the value halfway between them, add them together and divide by 2: 3+4 =7/2 =3.5
You would do that, but since we already know 3+3=6/2 = 3 no point.

how bout i show you how to do it on a calculator to ensure you will never make a mistake?
enter all of your data into L1 (STAT > Edit)
run "1 var stats" (STAT, press the right arrow and select 1var stats)
by default it plugs L1 so just press enter
scroll down and youll see 'med= '
1 var stats is very useful in stat class. you can find 5 number summary, standard deviation, etc etc in it

I took a stats class...
oh and not sure if trolling.
But the equation to find the median is (N+1)/2 where n is the total number of values in your sequence. The resulting number gives you which value is the median. if it's a decimaled number (like 3.5), you would add up the third and fourth number and divide by 2.
If you have low reps and people won't help you with your homework after starting a thread, pm me and I will make a thread for you (srs)

6 numbers = imagine 6 boxes
each number is a box
you want to total 3 boxes
1 = 1 box
2 = 1 box
3 = has 3 boxes > go 1/3 ...
median = 2 1/3 from what im doing and the picture?
