Solution :-

To calculate the Median (M), let us arrange the numbers in ascending order.

Median is the middle number of all the observation.

34, 38, 42, 44, 46, 48, 54, 55, 63, 70

Here the Number of observations are Even then Median

= \(\dfrac{ (46+48)}{2}\) = 47

Median = 47 and n = 10

By using the formula to calculate Mean Deviation,

= \( \dfrac{1}{10}\) × 86

= 8.6

The Mean Deviation is 8.6.
