    Default How to get Median/Middle value in an array?

    So first of all we use textpad in our java course (idk why) and the Easy.In method for our input.


    anyway I have this assignment and we're ask to make a program that input 1) how many numbers were input 2) the largest value 3)smallest value 4) average value and 5) middle/median value. I manage to figure out the code for the other except the median value. So i'm here asking for help!

    here's my code

    class project2
    {
     public static void main(String[] args)
     {
    	 System.out.println("How many numbers you want to input");
    	 int maxItems = EasyIn.getInt();
     
    	 int[] numbers = new int[maxItems];
     
    	 for(int i = 0; i < maxItems; i++)
    	 {
    		 System.out.println("Enter the value of number " + (i+1));
    		 numbers[i] = EasyIn.getInt();
    	 }
     
    	 System.out.println("The total count of numbers you inputed is " +maxItems);
     
    	 findlargest(numbers);
    	 findsmallest(numbers);
    	 findaverage(numbers);
    	 findmiddle(numbers);
     
     }
     
     public static void findlargest(int[]nos)
     {
    	 int largest = 0;
     
    	 for(int i = 0; i < nos.length; i++)
    	 {
    		 if(nos[i] > largest)
     
    		 largest = nos[i];
    	 }
    	 System.out.println(" ");
    	 System.out.println("The largest value is " +largest);
     }
     
     public static void findsmallest(int[]nos)
     {
    	 int smallest = nos[0];
     
    	 for(int i = 0; i < nos.length; i++)
    	 {
    		 if(nos[i] < smallest)
     
    		 smallest = nos[i];
    	 }
    	 System.out.println(" ");
    	 System.out.println("The smallest value is " +smallest);
     }
     
     public static void findaverage(int[]nos)
     {
    	 double total = 0;
    	 double average;
     
    	 for(int i = 0; i < nos.length; i++)
    	 {
    		 total += nos[i];
    	 }
    	 average = total / nos.length;
    	 System.out.println(" ");
    	 System.out.println("The average value is " +average);
     }
     
     public static void findmiddle(int[]nos)
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    {
     }
    }

    Please post your code correctly.

    When I greeted you in January, I didn't ask you to read this topic to learn how to post code in code or highlight tags and other useful info for new members.
