# Find The Mean And Median Of All The Positive Factors Of 72.

Factors of 72 are 1,2,3,4,6,8,9,12,18,24,36,72.

The mean factors of 72 are

$$\frac{1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 6 + 8 + 9 + 12 + 18 + 24 + 36 + 72}{12}\\\Rightarrow \frac{195}{12}\\\Rightarrow 16.25$$

The median factors of 72 are

$$\frac{1}{2} * (\frac{n}{2}^{th} + (\frac{n}{2} + 1)^{th})\\\Rightarrow \frac{1}{2}(6^{th}term + 7^{th} term)\\\Rightarrow 8.5$$

Therefore,

The mean factor of 72 is 16.25

The median factor of 72 is 8.5
