# The median of the numbers 4, 4, 5, 7, 6, 7, 7, 12, 3 is

Question:

The median of the numbers 4, 4, 5, 7, 6, 7, 7, 12, 3 is
(a) 4
(b) 5
(c) 6
(d) 7

Solution:

(c) 6

We will arrange the given data in ascending order as:
3, 4, 4, 5, 6, 7, 7, 7, 12
Here, n is 9, which is an odd number.
Thus, we have

Median $=$ Value of $\frac{1}{2}(n+1)$ th term

Median score $=\frac{1}{2}(9+1)$ th term $=5$ th term $=6$
