00:00:00.840 --> 00:00:02.940 A:middle L:90%
this question gives you a list of a list of
2
00:00:02.940 --> 00:00:05.389 A:middle L:90%
numbers and asks you to find the median. The
3
00:00:05.389 --> 00:00:12.439 A:middle L:90%
lists that it gives is 0.2 1.40 point six 0.2
4
00:00:12.439 --> 00:00:20.390 A:middle L:90%
again 2.5, 1.9, 0.8 and 1.5 Now,
5
00:00:20.399 --> 00:00:23.179 A:middle L:90%
clearly, this is not in order. And to
6
00:00:23.179 --> 00:00:25.500 A:middle L:90%
find a median, we need to have some sort
7
00:00:25.500 --> 00:00:27.510 A:middle L:90%
of ordered list that is going from lowest to highest
8
00:00:27.510 --> 00:00:29.760 A:middle L:90%
or highest to lowest. So we're gonna find our
9
00:00:29.760 --> 00:00:31.329 A:middle L:90%
median by hand. We need to put this in
10
00:00:31.329 --> 00:00:34.939 A:middle L:90%
order somehow. So the way I'm going to do
11
00:00:34.939 --> 00:00:37.070 A:middle L:90%
that is lowest to highest, and I'll sort this
12
00:00:37.070 --> 00:00:39.109 A:middle L:90%
. It's going to get your point to as your
13
00:00:39.109 --> 00:00:44.299 A:middle L:90%
point too. 0.60 point eight. Um, you
14
00:00:44.310 --> 00:00:48.939 A:middle L:90%
have 1.41 point five 1.9, and then finally,
15
00:00:48.939 --> 00:00:52.850 A:middle L:90%
2.5. Now, when we have an order list
16
00:00:52.850 --> 00:00:54.539 A:middle L:90%
like this, if we have an order to list
17
00:00:54.539 --> 00:00:56.689 A:middle L:90%
of length end, we know the median is at
18
00:00:56.689 --> 00:01:00.009 A:middle L:90%
point and plus 1/2 now here and is eight.
19
00:01:00.009 --> 00:01:03.369 A:middle L:90%
So our meeting is going to be a 80.8 plus
20
00:01:03.369 --> 00:01:06.069 A:middle L:90%
1/2, but a plus 1/2 is not a whole
21
00:01:06.069 --> 00:01:07.599 A:middle L:90%
number. It's 4.5. How do we have a
22
00:01:07.599 --> 00:01:11.239 A:middle L:90%
median between entries? Number four and five is gonna
23
00:01:11.239 --> 00:01:14.920 A:middle L:90%
be right here. Well, when we have this
24
00:01:14.920 --> 00:01:15.530 A:middle L:90%
and this will happen whenever you have a data set
25
00:01:15.540 --> 00:01:18.969 A:middle L:90%
of even numbers, what you have to do is
26
00:01:18.980 --> 00:01:22.390 A:middle L:90%
average the data point right below and the data point
27
00:01:22.390 --> 00:01:26.099 A:middle L:90%
right above. So our median is going to be
28
00:01:26.099 --> 00:01:32.750 A:middle L:90%
the average of 0.8 and 1.4, which we confined
29
00:01:32.760 --> 00:01:36.420 A:middle L:90%
is 1.1. So that's your median one point.
