The given data is already in ascending order

Number of observations, n = 10 (even)

\\Median=\frac{(\frac{n}{2})^{th}\ term+(\frac{n}{2}+1)^{th}\ term}{2}\\ Median=\frac{(\frac{10}{2})^{th}\ term+(\frac{10}{2}+1)^{th}\ term}{2}\\ Median=\frac{(5)^{th}\ term+(6)^{th}\ term}{2}\\ Median=\frac{(x)+(x+2)}{2}\\ Median=\frac{2x+2}{2}\\ Median=x+1

x + 1 = 63

x = 62
