Decide whether a number is the median or mean of a given series of whole numbers. (Example for this math problem)


A series of whole numbers is presented. Another given number is the median or mean of this series of numbers. It has to be determined whether it is the median or the mean value.

The number space from which the numbers come can be set. The number of numbers in the number series can also be selected. If the median is asked for, it must be calculated from the mean value of the two middle numbers if the number of numbers is even. To ensure that the median can always be read directly from the number series, it can be specified that the number of numbers is always odd when the median is asked for.

The number series is designed in such a way that the mean and the median, like the numbers themselves, are always whole numbers.

If desired, the numbers can be presented sorted by size.

The number of tasks is adjustable.
