this is was the question

Which population category is in the middle, if you arrange the 50 states in order of their population category?

The question is a bit confusing…

So are they asking us, what is the population of the median state, which would mean the average of the population of the 25th and the 26th state?

Correct. And do you know which groups the 25th and 26th states are?

Ohh I got it now…

So we gotta add up the states and find that out

It would be in the 3rd group

Thank you!
