Step 1: Arrange the numbers from least to greatest.

GIVEN: 15, 13, 10, 14, y

Least to greatest: 10, 13, 14, 15

y = ?

If y = more than 13 then the median will be 14

If y = less than 13 then the median will be 13

So, assume any value of y less then 13 because the given median is 13

y = 12, 11, 9,..........

For example take y = 9

9, 10, 13, 14, 15

n = 9 (odd)

So the middle value if median

The number in the middle is 13. When y = 9, the median is 13.
