IF 25 percent of the projects at Company Z have 4 or more employees and 35 percent of the projects at Company Z have 2 or fewer employees , then the rest (the middle 40 percent) have exactly 3 employees.

thus, the median is 3 employees.

Assume 100 employees,
we would have 35 employees having 2 or fewer employees
we would have 25 employees having 4 or more employees

The remaining 60 employees would be in the middle or 3 employees exactly. Since the median of 100 is the average of the 49th term & 50th term, the median = 3.

I still dont get it .
We dont have any information about the remaining 60% of company here.
What if 60 percent of the projects at Company Z have 10 or more employees assigned to each project ?
I think I am still missing something.

that part would be covered by the statement "4 or more employees" which we are told is 25%. We don't really care out of this 25%, how many are 10, how many are 8 etc..... what we are really concerned with, is what's the value for the 49th and 50th term.
