What is the median for the following numbers?
14,16,27,12,27,17,13

Math 
Ms. Sue,
The median is the number in the middle. First, put the numbers in order:
12, 13, 14, 16, 17, 27, 27
Now find the number that falls in the middle.

2 numbers fall in the middle. 14 and 16

Math 
Ms. Sue,
Only 16 is in the middle. Three numbers are below 16 and three numbers are above 16.
