# C Programming (Turbo C++ Compiler) - Calculate Median

I have given the simple C program for calculating median for a set of numbers. The other related linkes are,

## Source Code

#include <stdlib.h>

#include <stdio.h>

#include <math.h>

float CalculateMedian(float *arrValue, int max)

{

float median = 0;

float value[100];

int i, j;

float temp;

if(max > 100)

return 0;

for(i = 0; i < max; i++)

value[i] = arrValue[i];

for(i = 0; i < max; i++)

{

for(j = 0; j < max - i - 1; j++)

{

if(value[j] > value[j + 1])

{

temp = value[j];

value[j] = value[j + 1];

value[j + 1] = temp;

}

}

}

if( (max % 2) == 1)

{

median =  value[ (max + 1) / 2 - 1];

}

else

{

median = (value[max / 2] + value[max / 2 - 1]) / 2;

}

return median;

}

int main()

{

float arrNumbers[100];

int i, max;

float median;

char buf[1024];

printf("Total Number of Elements: ");

scanf("%d", &max);

for(i = 0; i < max; i++)

{

printf("Enter [%d] Number: ", i + 1);

scanf("%f", &arrNumbers[i]);

}

printf("Total Numbers: %d\n", max);

median = CalculateMedian(arrNumbers, max);

printf("Median: %f", median);

return 0;

}

## Output

Total Number of Elements: 10

Enter [1] Number: 6

Enter [2] Number: 7

Enter [3] Number: 8

Enter [4] Number: 7

Enter [5] Number: 6

Enter [6] Number: 5

Enter [7] Number: 2

Enter [8] Number: 2

Enter [9] Number: 9

Enter [10] Number: 3

Total Numbers: 10

Median: 6.000000
