Here is the complete detail of the calculation to arrive at the solution and define the values ​​of X and Y:

• 3+15 = 18 -> 18/2 = 9
• 15+7 = 22 -> 22/2 = 11
• 7+19 = 26 -> 26/2 = 13
• 9+11 = 20 -> 20/2 = 10
• In the same way: 11+13 = 24 -> 24/2 = 12

X is then equal to 12

Now that we know the value of X (12), we can do the math to find the value of Y: 10+12 = 22 -> 22/2 = 11

Y is then equal to 11
