further ahead we had: Ο μέσος άντρας = The average man
and we are told: the middle man is ο μεσαίος άντρας

What is right, when now we have: The middle number = Ο μέσος αριθμός ???

my question is, is this average (mean) or middle (median) number. I filled in average, this was counted correct but suggested alternate translation was middle number.

For me as a data scientist and statistician these are completely different terms.

For example, let's say I have the numbers 1, 4, and 10

the average (mean) number is (1+4+10)/3=5

the middle (mean) number is 4

which one is Ο μέσος αριθμός
