What is MEDIAN?

An arranged value set finds this specific type of value or quantity at the ascending or descending order’s halfway point. When an odd number of values exists in the set , the exact middle is the median value. With a set containing an even group of values, averaging the two numbers closest to the middle computes the median. Also refer to mode.
