## Simplest way to calculate the median with MySQL

Simple way to calculate median with MySQL

What's the simplest (and hopefully not too slow) way to calculate the median with MySQL?

I tried this query and I've this output:
Code:
```mysql> SELECT
field1,
field2,
`names`,
SUM(field2) / (
Cast(
(SELECT COUNT(*) FROM `tbl_11`) AS DECIMAL (18, 2)
)
) AS field2
FROM
`tbl_11`
GROUP BY
field1,
`names`;
+--------+--------+-------+--------+
| field1 | field2 | names | field2 |
+--------+--------+-------+--------+
| A1     |     10 | L_1   | 0.0694 |
| A1     |     10 | L_2   | 0.0694 |
| A1     |     10 | L_3   | 0.0694 |
.........
.........
.........
+--------+--------+-------+--------+

144 rows in set```
I expected this:
Code:
```+--------+--------+-------+--------+
| field1 | field2 | names | field2 |
+--------+--------+-------+--------+
| A1     |     30 | L_1   | 10     |
+--------+--------+-------+--------+```
where: 30/3 = 10 ===> 30 is the sum of single value 'A1' and 3 is the total of rows field1 equal to A1.

Can you help me?
Any help would be appreciated.
