Can anybody, please, tell me what's wrong with my code? I know it doesn't look as one would like, but I'll find out a better way to solve this.
It throws up an error that says what I just posted down here, but it works fine in Python.
Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this! (
Oops, try again. median([4, 5, 5, 4]) returned 4 instead of 4.5
def median(lst): sortd_lst = sorted(lst) if len(sortd_lst) % 2 == 0: print("The list has an even number of items") vaca = sortd_lst[len(sortd_lst) // 2] first_num = vaca second_num = vaca - 1 mid = (first_num + second_num) / 2 else: print("This list has an odd number of items") mid = sortd_lst[(len(sortd_lst) // 2) - 1] print(mid) return mid print(mid) median([4, 5, 5, 4])
