Hi everyone,

I’ve come up with the solution for this exercise. Everything seems fine (i.e. logic, print), but for some reason it is not accepted as a solution.

Here is my code:

import numpy as np

large_set = np.genfromtxt(‘household_income.csv’, delimiter=’,’)

small_set = [10100, 35500, 105000, 85000, 25500, 40500, 65000]
sorted_small_set = np.sort(small_set)
small_set_median = sorted_small_set[len(small_set)/2]
large_set_median = np.median(large_set)

print(small_set_median)
print(large_set_median)

I clicked on the button to give me the solution, I copied it, then reset it and pasted it into the terminal. It still doesn’t accept the solution even if it’s what I copied. I think it’s broken.

#4

I couldn’t figure out why my code wasn’t working when it came to the print section so I used the solution code… But it was identical to the code I had. So I think the last instruction might be bugged.
