## Summary

For two given numbers for a number series, decide which is the median and which is the mean.

## Description

A series of whole numbers is presented. In addition, two more numbers of integers are presented. One of these numbers is the mean, one number is the median. The task is to identify which number is which.

The number space from which the numbers come can be set. The number of numbers in the number series can also be selected. If the median is asked for, it must be calculated 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 designed in such a way that the mean and the median, like the numbers themselves, are always whole numbers.

If desired, the numbers can be presented sorted by size.

The number of tasks is adjustable.
