## Problem Statement

#### The median is the middle value in an ordered integer list. If the size of the list is even, there is no middle value and the median is the mean of the two middle values.

##### Example:
``````Median for ‘arr’ = [1,2,3,4,5] is 3.
Median for ‘arr’ = [1,2,3,4] is (2+3)/2 = 2.5.
``````

#### Note : Answers within 10^-5 of actual answer will be accepted.

##### Example:
``````Input:
5
1 1
1 2
2
1 5
2

Output:
1.5
2

Explanation:
MedianFinder() initialises the MedianFinder object.
Add 1 to the data structure ‘arr’, so arr = [1].
Add 2 to arr, so arr = [1,2]
Find Median of current arr, that is (1+2)/2 = 1.5.
Add 5 to arr, so arr = [1,2,5]
Find Median of current arr, that is 2.0.
