Three people have $32, $72, and $98, respectively. If they pool their money then redistribute it among themselves, what is the maximum possible value for the median amount of money?

To maximize a median, one needs to minimize both the lower number and the higher number. the Lower number can be as low as 0, and the higher number can be as low as the median itself. So just take the total sum (=202) and divide by 2 to get 101 => we get 0, 101, 101.
