# Suppose a large class at Utica College has just given an exam and I picked 20 students at random from the class and asked each person their score on the exam. Here are their replies: 100, 98, 94, 94, 93, 93, 92, 90, 86, 86, 85, 84, 84, 78, 77, 73, 72, 68, 55, 12. Calculate the median of this data set.

A

To find the median, the data should be arranged in order from least to greatest: 12, 55, 68, 72, 73, 77, 78, 84, 84, 85, 86, 86, 90, 92, 93, 93, 94, 94, 98, 100. Since there is an even number of items, the median is calculated as the arithmetical mean of the two middlemost values, 85 and 86.

Median = (85+86)/2 = 85.5
