I agree with oxon...

We have the following six values:

17,37,38,43,54,73

The median according to these will be between 38 and 43

Isn't it possible to raise the median to 43?

Because the first set has an even number of
elements, one could define the set as

17, 33, 43, 43

and still have a median of 38. Combine that
with 37, 43, 54, 55, 73 and one gets

17, 33, 37, 43, 43, 43, 54, 55, 73.
