In other words 50 percent of the scores will be above the median and the remaining 50 percent below it.

finding the mean value for the above data given as follows:

Here I am calculating the mean by Calculating the mean from frequency distribution.

Class interval :1-3 ;Mid Value(x):2 Frequency(f):4(2.3,2.8,3.0,3.3);fx=8

Class interval:4-6 ; Mid value(x):5 :

Frequency(f):1(4.5);fx=5

fx = 8+5=13

Frequency(f)=4+1=5

Mean value=summation fx /summation f = 13/5 = 2.6

and the median for this data 2.3,2.8,3,3.3,4.5=3

Therefore, here the mean is less than the median.
