The variable *x*_{1}, *x*_{2},*x*_{3}, ………….,*x*_{100} are in ascending order of their magnitude, then the median of the variable is ______.

Answer: ( *x*_{50}+*x*_{51} )/2

Explanation:

Number of variables (*x*) = 100

∴ Median = 1/2 [ (*x*/2)^{th}+(*x*/2+1)^{th} ]

=1/2 [ (100/2)^{th}+(*100*/2+1)^{th} ]

=1/2 [ 50^{th}+51^{th} ]

=1/2 (* x*_{50}+*x*_{51} )
