Sum

In a group of 25 students, 7 students failed and 6 students got distinction and the marks of the remaining 12 students are 61, 36, 44, 59, 52, 56, 41, 37, 39, 38, 41, 64. Find the median marks of the whole group.

#### Solution

n = 25
Median = ("n"+1)/2

= (25+1)/2
= 13th observation
We have been stated that 7 students failed (assuming passing marks on 35) and 6 students got distinction (assuming distinction as 70+), and the marks of the remaining 12 students (who will be situated between the two groups mentioned above, if arranged in ascending order), we have,
F, F, F, F, F, F, F, 36, 37, 38, 39, 41, 41, 44, 52, 56, 59, 61, 64, D, D, D, D, D, D
∴ median = 13th observation = 41.
