here we have a set of numbers, and our goal is to find the median. And remember that the median will be the middle number once we have the numbers arranged from least two greatest. So the first thing we want to do is rearrange the numbers in order from least to greatest. And we get to 0.3 2.5, 5.5, 6.2, 7.8 and 7.8. Now we want to count to see how many numbers we have. 123456 So, because there are six numbers, there is technically no. One middle number. And in that case, what we do is we average are two middle numbers, so we average are 5.5 and 6.2, and that means we add them up and divide by two. And that gives us 5.85 And that is our median
