### Example Question #82 : How To Find Median

Use the following data set to answer the question:

Find the median.

Explanation:

To find the median of a data set, we must first arrange the set in ascending order. And then we must locate the number in the middle or center of the set.

So, firstly, we need to arrange them from smallest to largest (ascending order). So, in the data set

we will arrange them from smallest to largest.  So,

Now, we will locate the number in the middle or center of the set.  We can see the number  is in the center of the set.

Therefore,  is the median of the data set.
