Thread: STATISTICS: How do you find the EXACT median?

1. 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

The number that splits both sides equally.

The median is 3.

If you had. 1 2 3 4 5 6

To find the value half-way 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.

3. 3...

4. its 3

5. i tested my 6th grade sister to see how retarded you were, she said she learned this in 3rd grade

6. but what do you really mean?

7. dont know, no rapes for me

8. not sure if trolling

9. (3+3)/2

13. 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 1-var 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

lmao. the irony is strong in this one. pls go if youve never taken stats

15. 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.

1+2+3+3+3+5 = 17
17/6 = 2.83

you dun goofed man thats the mean

EDIT: i see picture, will try to figure it out.

yeah i typed it wrong. the last number is a 4 not a 5.

1, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4

the median is 2.83

22. i can officially do these problems.

they're basically asking for a center of mass - like figure.

give me a set and ill find its median for you.

can you explain how

the median is 2.83 for
1, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4

24. use the bell curve and the equations that come with them. Should be in a book or wahtever notes you took.

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?
