## Median vs Mean

I’ve been doing some statistical measurements lately (more to follow). It occurs to me that while most people measure the mean of a set of measurements, the median is more useful.

Special thanks to Justin Patrin for his awesome ASCIIMathML plugin. From now on, equations will look nicer, like: [amath]arc=2*cos^-1(1-r_2^2/(2*r_1^2))*r_1[/amath] You rock, Justin! I (and my readers) thank you.
