The frequencies for 10 and 11 is 4. This means that there were 4 states with 10 electoral votes. Same applies to 15 and 21 with frequencies of 3 and 2 respectively

The median number of electoral votes for the 21 states is just simply the middle number after re-arranging in an order of either ascending or desending.

10, 10, 10, 10, 11, 11, 11, 11, 12, 13, 15, 15, 25, 17, 20, 21, 21, 27, 31, 34, 55

The middle number is 15
