well, the easiest one is mode. since all the numbers are different, there is no mode
to find the mean, add them all up and divide by 5
since there aren't any outliers, the mean is the best measure of central tendency

hm, it's become intuitive to me at this point but
an "outlier" is a data point that is very different than the others. All of the data points are similar to each other (they're all in the low 10,000 range), so we can use the mean instead of the median
if there were an outlier (like, say that one of the numbers was like 50,000) then we would use the median, since the mean would be something big like 20,000 so it wouldn't be representative of the data
so TLDR: no outlier = use mean, outlier = use median
now, if you're wondering how we determine whether there's an outlier, there's a quartile test you can use but it requires a bit of calculation. for now, I would generally assume there is no outlier unless the outlier is obvious
