Hi:
A nuber of cats are weighed:
30% weigh 2 kg or less
80% weigh 5 kg or less
Estimate the median cat weight
Any help please
thank you
The median is defined to the value at which there is an equal number of observations less than and greater than it. For example, the median of: 1,2,3,4,5 is 3 because there are 2 values less than 3 and 2 values greater than 3.
Say you have ten cats. So 3 of them weigh 2-kg and 8 weight 5-kg. What is the weight at which there will be an equal number of cats lighter and heavier than it?
