Default need help with this simple math...?

i can`t believe i forgot this, but...in this set of data:3, 3, 6, 7, 8, 11,13, 14, 21, 22, 24I have to find the median. Would the median be the number in the middle (taking out all of the repeated numbers) --> making the median 12 (in between 11 and 13) or..without deleting repeated numbers, making it 11?gawd I feel so ****** right now...lol.help is much appreciated =)

if it's valid data you can't remove repeating.if your population of 10 individuals have salaries of:$100 $100 $100 $200 $300$400 $500 $600 $700 $800the median is still drawn from all 10 figures and not from only 8 of the figures.You know this from reciting the definition:"exactly 1/2 of the population has salary GREATER and exactly 1/2 of the population has salary LESS than the median."
