Pat recorded the weights of the first ten fish she caught and released at Mirror Lake this season. The weights were 8 lb, 6 lb, 9 lb, 6 lb, 7 lb, 5 lb, 7 lb, 6 lb, 23 lb, and 6 lb. What is the median of the data set

I answered this earlier.
Didn't you see it?
You have to arrange all of the numbers in order from highest to lowest and count to find the middle number.
example: 20 30 40 50 60
has a median of 40  the middle number
23 30 40 60
the middle is between 30 and 40
so 30 + 40 = 70?2 = 35 
its 6.5

Thank you Nisabel
