How many pull ups is average for a healthy somewhat active 15 year old who's never really worked out?

I was able to max out at about 10 when i first started exercising. I'm not sure if that's average considering i had a naturally very low body fat % (about 4 or 5) and a skinny body type, so i was pretty lightweight. Is that normal or am I just naturally strong?

As per the various reports from the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, a 15 year old can be able to do about 5 pull-ups and push-ups. This is the recommendable benchmark for fitness health.

Lol I'm 15 and I can't do any pull ups... But I'm really fit (mainly cardio, legs, and abs) so I'm really impressed!
