Yes, The median would be 48 because in 10 numbers 5th and 6th are in the middle and since 5th and 6th are 48, (48+48)=48.

Yes, even if the 5th and 6th number, for exambple both 48 are the same, the median would still be 48 as the median would be the average of the 5th and 6th number added together divided y two:
48+48/2=48 (same number)
So, if there is a even set of numbers, for example ten, you would use the average of 5th and 6th number added together to get the median. But for odd set of numbers, then just use the 6th number only as the median.
