The median is the "middle" number in a set. If the set of numbers is even, then it is the average of the two middle numbers.

Easiest surest way to solve this is honestly to just quickly write out the set:

96,96,96,96,84,84,84,84,84,84,84,80,80,80,80,70,70,70,48,48

The two middle numbers are 84 and 84. Therefore, the answer is B.

There may be an easier way, but this took less than a minute as long as you understand the concept.
