How to get the index of median value? NOTE: Yes, I know what median is and I know it sometimes can be average of two values at the middle. What I want to get is the index of value nearest or equal to median value. The array of values contain unsorted values. We cannot sort this array I need the index from the original array.If you have an odd number of values, this will find the index of the first entry of the median. If you have an even number, it will find the index of the first number which is equally close to the median. (I. e. if your list has a median of 5 and contains 4, 4, 6, 6 the first 4 will be reported. ) It also reports how close your value is to the median. index number median

the median is the mean of the middle two numbers: this is (), which is. (In more technical terms, this interprets the median as the fully trimmed midrange). The formula used to find the index of the middle number of a data set of n numerically ordered numbers is (). This either gives the middle number (for an odd number of values) or the halfway point between the two middle values.
