### Problem Statement

The basic idea of this problem to find a median of two arrays. A median is an element that happens to lay in the middle of a sorted list of elements.

It's easy to find a median when the number of elements in said list is odd, since there is only one element that lays in the middle (at position n/2). If the number of elements is even, then there's more than one middle element. In such case we consider median to be an average of elements at positions n/2-1 and n/2.
