  1. Did you know average and median are two different things.

    Granted it will be close to average but it can be far off too.

    Average you add all the numbers together and divide by the total amount of numbers.

    Median you list out the numbers in order from least to most then take the one set of numbers in the very center of the list. If there are two, you take the average of those two.
