What is the Median of 5 and 7?

The median is defined as the middle value of the given data set. The median of 5 and 7 is 6.


Since the given number of data is even, the median of 5 and 7 is calculated as follows:

Median = (5+7)/2

Median = 12/2

Median = 6

Hence, the median of 5 and 7 is 6.

Note: While calculating the median, first, arrange the given data values in ascending order. If the total number given data values is odd, then the central value of the data set is considered as the median. In case, if the total number of data values is even, the average of 2 middle values is taken as the median.
