The median is the middle value in a range of values, which is different from the average (mean) which is the sum of the values divided the number of values. For example, if 7 houses were sold at the following prices :
200K, 210K, 220K, 225K, 230K, 240K, 600K
then the median value would be that of the 4th value = 225K
the average value would be (200+210+220+225+230+240+600) / 7 = 275K
Medians prevent extremely high or low values from distorting the picture. Obviously in this example the median of 225K is a more representative figure that the average 275K which has been distorted by the one high value of 600K. Hope this makes sense !!
Where there are an even number of values then the median is half way between the 2 middle values, ie the median of 1,3,5,9 is 4.
Amazing what I find to do instead of doing the housework !!!

Backpacked round Australia 1992. Married Australian husband in Adelaide 1994. Lived in Adelaide 19941997. Moved back to UK & lived in Essex/Herts 19972009. Returned to Adelaide November 2009. 2 kids dual nationality.
I must be missing something it never would take 8 hours to walk to henley even on one hand and you could have had a pint at the westbeach lifesavers club. There are loads of great pubs around adelaide. We have had plenty of lads nights out in the city, Glenelg, Marion and other suburbs. I think if you expect eveything to be like the UK you will be disappointed and if you want pubs by the sea just go to Blackpool would be far cheaper lol.

Has the OP answered or responded  don't think so.
Do we have a troll post?
Your brother would probably enjoy the city better than the burbs there are many pubs within the city, problem being that many of them are now becoming more function centers, same situation really in Melbourne. He should check out the Grace Emily, and there are some great pubs on Rundle Street for the younger guys also, the Exeter is pretty good also, because it is a city full of students at the Uni it is quite easy to meet people your own age there.
Good luck
