00:00:01.540 --> 00:00:03.600 A:middle L:90%
this question gives us a list of numbers and asks
2
00:00:03.600 --> 00:00:06.490 A:middle L:90%
us to find the median. The data that it
3
00:00:06.490 --> 00:00:16.750 A:middle L:90%
gives is 100 114 125 135 150 and 172.
4
00:00:18.210 --> 00:00:20.670 A:middle L:90%
Now, we know when we have a data set
5
00:00:20.679 --> 00:00:26.289 A:middle L:90%
of in, um, points that the median will
6
00:00:26.289 --> 00:00:31.449 A:middle L:90%
be at the point and plus 1/2. So here
7
00:00:31.739 --> 00:00:35.649 A:middle L:90%
we have six data points to an equal six.
8
00:00:36.240 --> 00:00:38.729 A:middle L:90%
Which means our data, our median will be at
9
00:00:38.729 --> 00:00:44.350 A:middle L:90%
0.6 plus 1/2. Just 7/2, which is 3.5
10
00:00:45.439 --> 00:00:47.920 A:middle L:90%
. Well, how do we have a data point
11
00:00:47.920 --> 00:00:51.420 A:middle L:90%
at 3.5? How does that make sense? Well
12
00:00:51.630 --> 00:00:53.979 A:middle L:90%
, when you have something like this, that your
13
00:00:53.979 --> 00:00:56.909 A:middle L:90%
median is right in the middle of your data,
14
00:00:57.840 --> 00:01:00.899 A:middle L:90%
Uh, with no point attached to it, this
15
00:01:00.899 --> 00:01:02.600 A:middle L:90%
will happen when you have an even number of data
16
00:01:02.600 --> 00:01:04.969 A:middle L:90%
points. What you do is you take point the
17
00:01:04.969 --> 00:01:07.230 A:middle L:90%
point right in front of it. So three in
18
00:01:07.230 --> 00:01:11.370 A:middle L:90%
the point right after it for and you average them
19
00:01:11.370 --> 00:01:15.930 A:middle L:90%
so well, uh, add them together 1 25
20
00:01:15.930 --> 00:01:19.469 A:middle L:90%
plus 1 35 and divide by two. That will
21
00:01:19.469 --> 00:01:26.480 A:middle L:90%
give us the median equal to 130. And that's
22
00:01:26.480 --> 00:01:26.060 A:middle L:90%
your final answer.
