The following examples will be based on the following array:

``````let values = [2, 56, 3, 41, 0, 4, 100, 23];
``````

To get the average, we have to sum up numbers and then divide by the number of values. Steps are:

• get the array length
• sum up values
• get the average (`sum/length`)
``````let values = [2, 56, 3, 41, 0, 4, 100, 23];
let sum = values.reduce((previous, current) => current += previous);
let avg = sum / values.length;
// avg = 28
``````

Or:

``````let values = [2, 56, 3, 41, 0, 4, 100, 23];
let count = values.length;
values = values.reduce((previous, current) => current += previous);
values /= count;
// avg = 28
``````

Now, to get the median steps are:

• sort the array
• get the arethmic mean of the middle values
``````let values = [2, 56, 3, 41, 0, 4, 100, 23];
values.sort((a, b) => a - b);
let lowMiddle = Math.floor((values.length - 1) / 2);
let highMiddle = Math.ceil((values.length - 1) / 2);
let median = (values[lowMiddle] + values[highMiddle]) / 2;
// median = 13,5
``````

With a bitwise operator:

``````let values = [2, 56, 3, 41, 0, 4, 100, 23];
values.sort((a, b) => a - b);
let median = (values[(values.length - 1) >> 1] + values[values.length >> 1]) / 2
// median = 13,5
``````
