Ten different numbers are ordered from least to greatest. The median of the numbers is 12. Three additional numbers are added to the group: 8, 15, and 16. What is the resulting effect on the median?

Since two numbers are above the median and only one is below, the median will be increased slightly. The median is that point where half of the scores are valued above and half below.
