A list of measurements in increasing order is 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and x. If the median of these measurements is 6/7 times their arithmetic mean, what is the value of x?

Median = (6 + 8)/2 = 7

7 = (6/7) * (Average)
Average = 49/6

Average = 49/6 = (4 + 5 + 6 + 8 + 10 + x)/6

49/6 = (x + 33)/6

49 = x + 33

x = 49 - 33 = 16
