#### The points scored by a Kabaddi team in a series of matches are as follow:

17, 2, 5, 27. 15. 8. 14, 10, 48, 10, 7, 24, 8, 28, 18.

Find the mean and the median of the points scored by the Kabaddi team

**Solution:**

Let’s arrange the given data in descending order:

2, 5, 7, 7, 8, 8, 10, 10, 14, 15, 17, 18, 24, 27, 28, 48

Here, n = 16 when is even

∴ Mean (x̄)

Ʃ x_{i}/ n = (2 + 5 + 7 + 7 + 8 + 8 + 10 + 10 + 14 + 15 + 17 + 18 + 24 + 27 + 28 + 48)/15

= 248/16 = 15.5 points

And,

Median = ½ [(16/2)^{th} term + (16/2 + 1)^{th} term]

= ½ (8^{th} term + 9^{th} term)

= ½ (10 + 14)

= ½ x 24 = 12 points

Hence, the mean and the median of the points scored by the Kabaddi team are 15.5 and 12 respectively.
