Give me a set of numbers and then tell me what you think the median number is.
i need help with algebra!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Put the numbers from least to greatest then cross numbers out starting from the outside. So, if I had the numbers 57,8,79,58,38,29, and 42 first I would put them from least to greatest so that it would be 8,29,38,42,57,58,79. Then I would cross out numbers in this order 8,79,29,58,38,57. Now I only have one number, 42. That is your median. Now let's say that we had another number 92. We would now put the order like this: 8,29,38,42,57,58,79,92. We would cross out in this order 8,92,29,79,38,58. Now we have two numbers, and if we cross those numbers out we wouldn't have anything left. What we do now is add th two numbers together (42 and 57) and the answer to that (99), and divide by two (this would be finding the average of the two). This would find the median (in our prolbem it would be 49.5).
