The median for the given set of six ordered data values is 31.5.
7,12, 25, __, 41, 51.
What is the missing value?
Please Help =) thank you
Since the middle numbers are 25 and 38, you need to find the number exactly in the middle of both of them to find the median,
x=the missing value
the median is the middle number, but in this case there are two which happens to be 25 and x
so the formula is
use algebra to solve
the missing value is 38Source(s): Algebra
the missing value is 38 because you take the median which is the 2 middle numbers added together then divided by 2. so to reverse it to find the answer you take 31.5 *2 and it come out as 63.
now we subtract 25 from 63 like 63-25 = 38. 38 is your answer.
