The following table represents the attendance at Still's High School football games this month.

Game 1: 456
Game 2: 508
Game 3: 399
Game 4: 550
Game 5: n

If the median attendance for the five games was 456, and no two games had the same attendance, which of the following numbers represents the highest possible attendance for game 5?

400, 455, 457, 478, 549

Answer

The median of five numbers can be found by putting the numbers in increasing order and picking the middle, or third, number from the list. Putting the four numbers you know in increasing order produces the following list:

399, 456, 508, 550

As the median is 456, it has to be the middle number of the list of five. That being said, the highest possible attendance of the list given, and the answer to this teaser is, 455.
