rthothad,

If there are 100 projects 25 have 2 employees, 40 have 3 employees and 35 have 1000 employees, then what is the median?

It will still be 3

Projects 1 thru' 25 will have 2 employees

Projects 26 thru' 65 will have 3 employees (our median falls in this range)

Projects 66 thru' 100 will have 1000 employees

Since projects 50, 51 has 3 employees this will be our median.

If you write this down, it will be clearer.

2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2.......upto 25 then

3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3.......upto 65 then

1000, 1000, 1000,.......upto 100 - we really do not need to worry about this as long as we know that they are greater than 3
