find the median in sql

# FOR TABLES WITH ODD NUMBER OF ROWS

# For column1 in table1 with 'n' number of rows. Where 'n' is an odd number.
# 1. Change all column1 and table1 to your column and table name.
# 2. Calculate (n/2)+0.5, where n=number of rows, and set it as LIMIT for t1.

SELECT *
FROM (SELECT column1
      FROM table1
      ORDER BY column1
      LIMIT (n/2)+0.5) AS t1
ORDER BY column1 DESC
LIMIT 1;

Here is what the above code is Doing:
1. The inner query is selecting the middle row from the table.
2. The outer query is selecting the middle row from the inner query.
