What is the Median of the Following Numbers
80, 80, 80, 90, 90,100

Median means the middle number. So the middle number in this case would be 80 and 90. You can't have two numbers so you find the average of 80 and 90. 80 plus 90 is 170. 170 divided by 2 is 85. So the median in 85.

A simple way to find the median is to order the numbers from least to greatest. These numbers are already in order.
80, 80, 80, 90, 90, 100
The median, like Amanda pointed out, is the middle number. Eighty and ninety in this case. Amanda already explained finding the average.
