Following are the steps to find the median.

Step 1: Arrange the data.

Step 2: Find the position of the median by using the formula

(n + 1) / 2

If there are odd number of values in the data then you wil get the whole number by using

(n + 1) / 2. So there will be only one middle value which is the median.

If there are even numbers of values in the data then you will get a decimal number by applying (n + 1) / 2. So there will be two middle value and after averaging them you will get the median.

9 2 6 5 1

1 2

Step 2: - (n+1) /2= (5+1)/2= 3

Hence 3

Median = 5

9 2 6 5 1 3

1 2

(n+1)/2= (6+1)/2= 3.5

Therefore average of 3

Median= (3+5)/2= 4
