I wrote up this code. This works fine with the odd number of items but can't function with even number of items.
def median(in_list): median = 0 sorted_list = sorted(in_list) count = len(sorted_list) x = count / 2 if count % 2 == 0: median = float((sorted_list[x] + sorted_list[x + 1]) / 2) else: median = (sorted_list[int(x + 0.5)]) return median print median([4, 5, 5, 4])
I don't know why it cannot calculate the actual median. Any help will be good.
