   _       Σx      
                                                         X = -------       Σx = sum of all scores                                                        N          N = number of scores

13 + 14 + 15 + 16 + 17 = 75

Σx = 75                 N= 5
                  _         Σx         75
              X = ------- = -------   = 15
                          N           5

Median: the point at which exactly half of the scores in a distribution are below & half are above
1. Odd number          13, 15, 16, 17, 19
