ConceptMeasures of Central Tendency

#### Question

Find the median of the observations, 59, 75, 68, 70, 74, 75, 80.

#### Solution

The observations in ascending order: 59, 68, 70, 74, 75, 75, 80.
Since, the number of observation, n = 7, which is odd.
= Median = ( (n + 1) / 2)th = (( 7 + 1 ) / 2)th = (8/2)th = 4th Observation 74
So, the median of the observations is 74.
