Casework

Problems involving statistics like mean and median are notorious for requiring casework.   Here my cases are n is less than, equal to, or greater than the median.  Once you’ve calculated the value of n, make sure it is consistent with the case, as when we find n=1, we confirm that it’s a valid solution since the case stipulates n<=8.
