Open in App
Solution

Arrange the data in ascending order, we have

36, 42, 45, 46, 49, 51, 53, 60, 72

Here n = 10 (which is even)

So median is average of 5th and 6th observation

Median = 46+492=952=47.5

x1 |xiM| 36 11.5 42 5.5 45 2.5 46 1.5 46 1.5 49 1.5 51 3.5 53 5.5 60 12.5 72 24.5 Total 70

M.D. about median=1nni1|xiM|=110×70=7
