    First to find the median we need to put the numbers in order from least to greatest.

    62, 64, 65, 66, 67, 69, 83

    Now take a number from each side

    64, 65, 66, 67, 69

    Once again.

    65, 66, 67

    On last time

    66

    So the median is 66.

    Now to find the mean we must add all the numbers up

    64+67+83+65+66+62+69

    which equals 476

    Now divide 476 by the total number of heights which is 7

    476/7=68

    So the mean is 68

    Answers: Mean; 68 Median; 66
