Median of a Set of Numbers
The median of a set of numbers
is the value for which half the numbers are larger and half are
smaller. If there are two middle numbers, the median is the arithmetic
mean of the two middle numbers.
Note: The median is a good choice
to represent the center of a distribution when the distribution
is skewed or has outliers.
