Find the Median Value

The Median is the "middle number" (in a sorted list of numbers). To find the Median, place the numbers you are given in value order and find the middle number.


Examples:


Find the Median of {12, 3 and 5} Put them in order: 3, 5, 12
The middle number is 5, so the median is 5.


Look at these numbers:
3, 13, 7, 5, 21, 23, 39, 23, 40, 23, 14, 12, 56, 23, 29

If we put those numbers in order we have:
3, 5, 7, 12, 13, 14, 21, 23, 23, 23, 23, 29, 39, 40, 56

There are fifteen numbers. Our middle number will be the eighth number:
3, 5, 7, 12, 13, 14, 21, 23, 23, 23, 23, 29, 39, 40, 56

The median value of this set of numbers is 23.
