The points scored by a kabaddi team in a series of matches are as follows:

8, 24, 10, 14, 5, 15, 7, 2, 17, 27, 10, 7, 48, 8, 18, 28

Find the median of the points scored by a team.

Answer :

Arrange the scores in ascending order;


Scores are = 2, 5, 7, 7, 8, 8, 10, 10, 14, 15, 17, 18, 24, 28, 48


Total points = 16 (even)


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


Median = 1/2 [value of 8th term + value of 9th term]


Median = 1/2 [10 + 14]


Median = 24/2 = 12


The median of the points scored by the team is 12.
