# Python Program to Find Median of 2 sorted arrays of different size

## Median of Two Sorted Arrays of Different Size in Python

Here, on this page, we will discuss the program to find the Median of Two Sorted Arrays of Different Size in Python programming language. We are given two sorted arrays say a[ ] and b[ ] of size n and m respectively. We need to find the median of these two sorted arrays. ### Algorithm

• After merging both arrays and sorting them send it to the function to find median
• If the length of the array is even then find the floor value of l divided by 2 and store it in medium
• Set median equals to sum of (array[medium] and array[medium-1]) divided by 2
• return median
• Else set medium equals to ceil(l/2) and return array[medium -1] ### Python Code

Run
```from math import ceil

def median_of_two_arrays(len, array):
if (len % 2) == 0:
medium = len // 2
median = (array[medium] + array[medium - 1]) / 2
return median
else:
medium = ceil(len / 2)
return array[medium - 1]

array1 = [2, 10, 12, 26]
array2 = [3, 6, 30, 78, 90]
print("After merging and sorting both array : ", end="")
array1 += array2
array1.sort()
print(array1)
ans = median_of_two_arrays(len(array1), array1)
print("Median :", ans)
```

### Output

`After merging and sorting both array : [2, 3, 6, 10, 12, 26, 30, 78, 90]Median : 12`
