I’m thinking of 5 numbers such that their mean is equal to their median. If 4 of the numbers are 14, 8, 16, and 14, what is the 5th number?

Please CW answers and hints in your responses.


@QOTO the median is either one of the 4 given numbers or the secret number.

if the median was the secret number what would that imply?

knowing the median, what should the sum be?
