Mean, = 401/13

= 30.84615385

Median = item when the items are arranged in ascending or descending order of magnitude.

The observations can be arranged in ascending order as follows:

10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 16, 17, 18, 20, 20, 25, 209

Therefore, Median = item = 7th item

= 16

Standard deviation = =
