A. 10

B. 13

C. 14

D. 15

E. 16


Arrange the 4 values in ascending order: {4, 10, 16, 26}
Since we have an EVEN number of values, the median will be the average of the 2 middlemost values.

So, the median = (10 + 16)2
= 26/2
= 13

Answer: B

Solution



To find:
    • The median of the numbers 10, 4, 26, and 16

Approach and Working:
To find the median, first we will arrange the numbers in ascending order
    • Numbers in ascending order = 4, 10, 16, 26

As there are even number of terms (4) present in the series, median will be the average of the middle two terms (2nd term and 3rd term)
    • Therefore, median = \(\frac{10+16}{2} = \frac{26}{2} = 13\)

Hence, the correct answer is option B.

Answer: B

A. 10

B. 13

C. 14

D. 15

E. 16


Listing the numbers from the least to the greatest, we have: 4, 10, 16, and 26.

When we have an even number of data values, the median is the average of the two middle numbers. Thus, the median is (10 + 16)/2 = 26/2 = 13.

Answer: B
