average number of flights is a multiple of 12

therefore, there may be 12 flights, 24 flights or 36 flights (all even)
In a set with an even number of items, the median is odd

for example: the median of 2 and 4 is 3
for example: the median of 2, 4, 6 is 4
whenever there is an even number of items, and since all the numbers are even, the median has to be odd
