Q. 38

The median of 1, 3, 2, 5, 8, 6, 1, 4, 7, 9 = (5th term + 6th term)


Answer :

By arranging the data in ascending form, we get,


1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9


n = 10 (even)


Median = 1/2 [Value of (n/2)th term + (n/2 + 1)th term]


= 1/2 [value of 5th term + value of 6th term]


= 1/2 (4 + 5)


= 9/2 = 4.5


Given median = 7


So, the given statement is false.
