My code works in Python 3 for the input [4,5,5,4]. However, on codecademy, the output of my code is 4 instead of 4.5 and I have no idea why. Any help would be appreciated.

def median(x):

x.sort()

q = int(len(x)/2)

r = len(x)

if r%2==0:

y = x[q] + x[q-1]

return y/2

elif r%2!=0:

h = x[int(q-.5)]

return h

# Python 2 versus Python 3 Median problem

oops it doesn’t work on python 3 either

It’s because in python 3.* the `/`

symbol became float division while in python 2.* it is floor division. You just have to switch it to `//`

for 2.*.

Thanks zeziba! I fixed the problem by applying floor() to the divisor
