4th grade math

I too am trying to help my son with his math homework. Problem is: at a Pokemon Tournament there are 6 players. Each player counted his cards at the beginning: These are the landmarks for the group:
Minimum: 8, Maximum: 16, Moes: 13, Median: 14.
Lisrt the numbers of cards each player could have to get these landmarks,
8 13 13 14 15 16
You have to have an 8 (Min) and a 16 (Max). Also at least two 13s because the mode is the most. Since the median is 14 you have to have that in the middle since there is an even amount of numbers, you would take 13 plus 14 (guess and check method to find the 14) and divide by 2 to equal 13.5 since you can't have half a card you would round up to 14 and 15 is in there because you can't have more than 2 of the same number because 13 is the mode.
