add 1 and half it

OpenStudy (anonymous):

no the median is the average of the two middle numbers so it can be 15,16,17,19,20 the 6th number could be anything greater then or equal to 19

OpenStudy (anonymous):

no dear median of even 5, 15, 17, 34, 56 will be 17 !

OpenStudy (anonymous):

its 17 if theres 5 numbers and if theres 6 numbers then the average of the two middle ones become the middle one in the case 15, 16,17,19,20,21 the 2 middle ones are 17 and 19 so to tak the average you go (17+19)\2 which equals 18
