Stepwise Solution of Calculating the Median of 3,8,7,4


The Median is the middle number in a sorted, ascending or descending, list of numbers and can be more descriptive of that data set than the average.

Formula for Median of Numbers:

If we have odd set of numbers,the formula will be:

Median=[ (n+1) / 2 ]th item

where n=Set of Numbers

If we have even set of numbers, the formula will be:

Median=Mean of two middle items

i.e., Median=Average of [ n / 2 ]th item and [ n+2 / 2 ]th item

The given numbers are 3,8,7,4

Firstly, the numbers should be set in an ascending order.


As these are having Even set of numbers,the Mean of the both middle numbers is the Median

The Set of Numbers, i.e., n = 4

The two middle numbers items will be n / 2 and (n+2) / 2

n / 2 = 4 / 2

n / 2 = 2

(n+2) / 2 = (4+2) / 2

n+2 / 2 = 3

The two middle number items 2 and 3 contains the numbers 4 and 7

Now these numbers should be calculated to know the mean of those numbers

The Mean of the numbers 4 and 7 is


The Mean (or Average) of a set of Data Values is the Sum of all of the Data Values divided by the Number of Data Values.

Formula for Mean of Numbers:

Mean (or) Average of Numbers = Sum of the given data / Number of given data

Mean = (x0 +x1 +x2 +x3 .......+xn) / n

X̄ = Σ xn / n

The Given Numbers are 4,7

Number of Data given, i.e., n = 2

Now, the Sum of the Data Values will be

x0 + x1 + x2 + x3 + .... + xi = 4+7

Σ xn = 11

Therefore, the Mean of Data is

X̄ = Σ xn / n

X̄ = 11 / 2

X̄ = 5.5

The Mean of Data is 5.5

[ n / 2 + (n+2) / 2] / 2 = (4+7) / 2

Average (or) Mean of two middle numbers is [5.5]

Median of the numbers is 5.5
