    Finding the median from a table

    Code:
    SCORE        1   2    3    4   5   6
    FREQUENCY    12  11   8   12   7   10
    If I have this table of values, and I must find the median, surely there must be a better way than to write it all out like "1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,3 ,3,3,3,3" etc

    How do I find the median, mode and mean for this table?

    There is an easier way, firstly how many values in total do you have?

    Sorry! I didn't post the whole question:

    An ordinary dice was rolled 60 times.

    The mean will be \displaystyle \frac{(1\times 12)+(2\times 11)+\dots +(6\times 10)}{60}

    Median will be halfway between the 30th and 31st values in the ordered set

    and the Mode will be were frequency is a maximum.
