Put the numbers of pages in order first: 271, 285, 287, 296, 298, 301, 314, 316, 326, 327, 333, 354


The number of terms n is 12, which is an even number. If n is even then the median will be the average of the n^{th} and the \frac{n+1}{2}^{th} term. So the median is the average of the 6^{th} and the 7^{th} term.


This is 301 and 314


The average of 301 and 314 is\frac{ (301 + 314)}{2} =\frac{615}{2} = 307.5


So the median number of words is 307.5
