# Mean and Median of a matrix

Given a sorted matrix of size n*n. Calculate the mean and median of the matrix .

Examples:

```Input : 1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
Output :Mean: 5
Median: 5

Input : 1 1 1
2 2 2
4 4 4
Output :Mean: 2
Median: 2
```
```Mean of matrix is =
(sum of all elements of matrix)/
(total elements of matrix)
Note that this definition doesn't require
matrix to be sorted and works for all
matrices.

Median of a sorted matrix is calculated as:
1. When n is odd
median is mat[n/2][n/2]
2. When n is even, median is average
of middle two elements.
Middle two elements can be found at indexes
a[(n-2)/2][n-1] and a[n/2]
```

If given matrix is unsorted, we can find its median by first sorting the matrix.
