Set S is a 7-positive integer set with an average of 25 and a median of 30. If n is in S, what is the least possible value of n?

(A) 1
(B) 2
(C) 3
(D) 4
(E) 5

The answer is A, but I am unsure of process behind concluding A. I understand how to find the sum from the average, but how would I use the median? And even with the median, I am unsure of how to get A.

Help, please!
