What you found was the mean or average of the numbers. They asked for the median which is the number in the middle of all the numbers. If there is an even amount of numbers as there is in this case (8), you take the two middle numbers which are 72 and 73 and then divide by two to get the median.

thehangers, the median is the number that's exactly in the middle of a list of odd numbers, if the list has an even number you take the two middle numbers and average them

thehangers, the median is not the average that's what you were doing, the median is the middle number if you put them all in a row low to high

That would give you the mean or avg. The median is the number that falls in the middle of all the numbers given. Hope this helps.

No matter what I do I come up with 73.375 as the median. Can anyone tell me how to do this. I thought you just added all the numbers and divided by 8.

10/10. Good quiz. Most questions just required common sense. However, I’m sure that I would have missed some when I was in 6th grade.
