The masses of 10 cabbages
in kilograms were recorded as follows:

5, 8, 4, 3, 6, 7, 2, 5, 1
and 9. Calculate the median of these data.

__Solution__
Arrange the data in order
of magnitude starting with the smallest.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ,5, 6, 7, 8, 9

There are eight data so
far. We get the two data in the middle which are 5 and 5.

Median can be calculated
by finding the average of the two middle values.

So, median =

__5+ 5__
2

= 5

**Hence median is 5.**
