## Thinking Mathematically (6th Edition)

median = $5.5$
Arrange the scores from least to greatest to obtain: $1, 3, 5, 5, 6, 8, 8, 10$ There are eight numbers. The middle numbers are the fourth and fifth scores, which are 5 and 6, respectively. The median will be the mean of these two numbers. Thus, median = $\dfrac{5+6}{2} = \dfrac{11}{2} = 5.5$
