Question

A small suburban community agreed to purchase police services from the county sheriff's department. The newspaper said, "In the past, the charge for police protection from the Sheriff's Department has been based on the median cost of the salary, fringe benefits, etc. That is, the cost per deputy was set halfway between the most expensive deputy and the least expensive."
(a) Is this the median? If not, what is it?
(b) Which would probably cost the city more, the midrange or the median? Why?
