  1. Not A

    Median is the middle number.
    When you have an even number of data values you have to get the average of the two middle values instead.

  2. Median is the middle number of a sorted list of data such that there are as many numbers above it as there are below.
    For example, median of the set of numbers
    {3,5,7,10,14,18}
    is 8.5, which is the average of the two middle numbers.
    The median of {1,4,9,13,16} would be 9, since 9 is the middle number.

    For your benefit, I interpret the data for team 1 as follows:
    {1,6,12,14,18,23,26,29}
    You can find the median in a similar way that I gave above.

    I will leave you to tackle team 2.

    Feel free to post your answers (medians for teams 1 and 2) for checking, together with explanations about how you got the answers.

    Note: I am not interested in the choices, that is your job to choose the right one once you have the correct answers.
