Question

In a basket there are 10 tomatoes. The weight of each of these tomatoes in grams is as follows:
60, 70, 90, 95, 50, 65, 70, 80, 85, 95.
Find the median of the weights of tomatoes.

Solution

The weight of 10 tomatoes in a basket in grams in ascending order is as follows:
50, 60, 65, 70, 70, 80, 85, 90, 95, 95
Since, the number of observations is 10, which is even.
So, median
= `1/2 xx  [ ( 10 / 2 )th  observation + ( 10/2 +1)th   observation ]`
= `1/2 xx [  5th   observation + ( 5 + 1) th  observation]`
= `1/2 xx [  5th   observation + 6th   observation ]`
= `1/2 xx [ 70 +80 ]`
= `150/2`
= 75
Find the median of the weights of tomatoes is 75 grams.
  Is there an error in this question or solution?
