#### 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.

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.

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?
