For a series of numbers, the mean or median is to be found.
A series of whole numbers is presented. Depending on the task, the median or the mean value of the numbers is to be determined.
It can be set whether only the mean or only the median is asked for, or whether one of the two values is asked for in random alternation.
The number range from which the numbers are taken can be set. The count of the numbers in the numerical series can also be selected. If the median is asked for, it must be formed from the mean value of the two middle numbers if the number of numbers is even. To ensure that the median can always be read directly from the number series, it can be specified that the number of numbers is always odd when the median is asked for.
The number series is made so that the mean, like the numbers themselves, is always an integer.
If desired, the numbers can be presented sorted by value.
To simplify the task, the solution steps can be given in the task and/or in the solution.
These steps are provided as follows:
For the mean:
1. Calculate the sum of the numbers.
2. Divide the sum by the number of numbers.
For the median:
1. Order the numbers in order of their size.
2. For an even number of numbers: Calculate the median as the mean of the two middle numbers.
2. For an odd number of numbers: The number in the middle is the median.
The number of problems can be set.
