can someone show me how to code the median if it is an even number

i know that but having trouble computing that in coding terms

So if you have 4 items, you would need to find items 2 and 3. (Hint: 2 is half of 4.)

but dont I need an if statement in there somehow to determine if its even or odd numbers

still having problems

double Calc_Median(int count, double Size[])
{
	double median = 0.0;
	double average_median;
	
	median = count / 2;

	if ( count % 2)
	{
		average_median = ((Size[count]) + (Size[count + 1]));
	}
	else
		
		average_median = Size[count / 2];

	
	return (average_median);
}

still having problems

double Calc_Median(int count, double Size[])
{
	double median = 0.0;
	double average_median;
	
	median = count / 2;

	if ( count % 2)
	{
		average_median = ((Size[count]) + (Size[count + 1]));
	}
	else
		
		average_median = Size[count / 2];

	
	return (average_median);
}

One, you are calculating median in line 7, but not using it in line 11. You are going past the bounds of the Size array. Two, you have it backwards. When count % 2 is true, count is odd, so you aren't taking an average, you are returning one number. When count % 2 is false, count is even, so you want to take an average. To avoid confusion, be more explicit. Don't treat count % 2 as true/false, but do this instead. It's easier for both you and the reader to follow:

if (count % 2 == 1)
{
     // count is odd, return one number.
     // code
}
else
{
     // count is even, return average of two numbers
     // code
}
