Median with Constraints

Directions: Create a statistical data set of at least 10 numbers such that:

1. All of the numbers in the data set are whole numbers.
2. The median is not a whole number.
3. The median is not part of the data set.



What strategy do you use to find the median of a data set? Does this strategy work in all cases?



There are many correct answers. One statistical data set that would work is {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}. Here the median is 5.5. You could make this question more challenging by adding more constraints.
