%N Median of terms of A254296 in the range (3^(n-1)+1)/2 to (3^n-1)/2.

%C As described in A254296, all the 'feasible' partitions of natural numbers (3^(n-1)+1)/2 to (3^n-1)/2 has n parts. A254439 lists the "median of the range ((3^(n-1)+1)/2)-th to ((3^n-1)/2)-th terms of A254296".

%C From conjectured formula, it appears that next terms are 1107102779611719118, 11090084422457163934046, 302002529294596303158583642. - _Benedict W. J. Irwin_, Nov 16 2016
