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

To find the median, you have to put the numbers in order from smallest to largest. Then count to find the middle.
Example: 20 30 40 50 60
The median is 40
Example: 20 30 40 50
the middle falls between 30 and 40 so the median is 35 (30+40)/2
