#### 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.
