# The distribution below gives the weights of 30 students of a class. Find the median weight of the students.  For median:

We have, total frequency, N = 30

N/2 = 30/2 = 15

Observe, cf = 19 is just greater than 15.

Thus, median class = 55-60

Median is given by Where,

L = Lower class limit of median class = 55

N/2 = 15

cf = cumulative frequency of the class preceding median class = 13

f = frequency of the median class = 6

h = class interval of the median class = 5

Substituting these values in the formula of median, we get  Median = 55 + 1.67

Median = 56.67

Thus, the median is 56.67 kg.
