# The runs scored by 11 members of a cricket team are

Question:

The runs scored by 11 members of a cricket team are
15, 34, 56, 27, 43, 29, 31, 13, 50, 20, 0
The median score is
(a) 27
(b) 29
(c) 31
(d) 20

Solution:

(b) 29

Arranging the weight of 10 students in ascending order, we have:
0, 13, 15, 20, 27, 29, 31, 34, 43, 50, 56
Here, n is 11, which is an odd number.
Thus, we have:

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

Median score $=$ Value of $\left(\frac{11+1}{2}\right)$ th term

$=$ Value of 6 th term

$=29$
