# Median Part 1

**Median** is the middlemost number in a set of numbers when the numbers are arranged in ascending or descending order.

**For example:** Consider the data {4, 7, 5, 6, 9}.

On arranging the numbers in ascending order, we have: 4, 5, 6, 7, 9.

So, the median is** 6** as 6 is the middlemost number.

When the number count is** even**, we need to add both the middlemost numbers and divide the obtained result by 2.

**For example:** Consider the data {1, 4, 5, 4}.

On arranging the numbers in ascending order, we have: 1, 4, 4, 5

The two middlemost numbers are 4 and 4.

So, the median is |
4. |
