I'd start by using if().

If you can convince the list that this isn't homework, you might get more help.

How would I go about saying the median = element x in terms of n (say (n + 1)/2 or whatever it would be) if there is an even amount of elements, or x in terms of n (with a different way of saying how many n) if there is an odd amount of elements?
