What is Median in Math?

What is median? What is the definition of median and how do you calculate the median? The median is the middle number in a set of numbers that are sorted in numerical order.

The median formula is (number of numbers in your set + 1) / 2 = where the answer is where in the set of numbers the median is. Like the 6th number or something like that.

For example, let's say you have the following numbers

2 4 6 7 23 29 42 54 87

In this case there are 9 numbers, so it will be (9 + 1) / 2 = Which equals the 5th number, thus the median is 23.

Note: If your answer is a fraction, like 5.3th number, then the median is the same as the average. Remember: Median = Middle Value.
