Arrange those numbers in order. The middle number is the median.

Since you have an even number of numbers, the median is half-way between the 5th and 6th numbers.

The fifth number is 20; the sixth is 24. What is half way between 20 and 24? That's the median.

For the second problem, how can 6.29 be half way between 29 and 93??

93 - 29 = 64

64/2 = 32

29 + 32 = 61
