# Find the median of the following data: 19, 25, 59, 48, 35, 31, 30, 32, 51. If 25 is replaced by 52 and 19 by 29, what will be the new median?

Answer :

Arranging the data in ascending order: 19, 25, 30, 31, 32, 35, 48, 51, 59.

The number of observations n = 9 (odd)

∴ Median = observation = 5

Hence Median = 32.

If 25 is replaced by 52 and 19 by 29, the new observations in ascending order are :

29, 30, 31, 32, 35, 48, 51, 52, 59.

∴ New Median = 5

The number of observations n = 9 (odd)

∴ Median = observation = 5

^{th }observation = 32.Hence Median = 32.

If 25 is replaced by 52 and 19 by 29, the new observations in ascending order are :

29, 30, 31, 32, 35, 48, 51, 52, 59.

∴ New Median = 5

^{th }observation = 35.Rate this question :
