#### Question

The median and the $50$th percentile rank score will always have the same value.

True or false ?

#### Solution

Verified#### Step 1

1 of 2The median is the middle number in a sorted dataset, and it splits the dataset in half. Half of the values are below the median, and half of the values are above the median).

The $50$th percentile is the number for which $50 \%$ of the values lie below and $50 \%$ of the values lie above, which basically means that the $50$th percentile splits the dataset in half as well. So, the median and the $50$th percentile rank score will always have the same value.

Therefore, this statement is **TRUE**.
