Find if max elements in array < or > a given number

I would like to write a code to calculate if a array, for example:
[6 7 4 8 9] has maximum elements above 5 (this number will be equal to number of elements) or not.
Here 4 out 5 elements are above 5 so the output will show "max elements greater than 5".
In case the array was [2 3 5 8 9] 3 elements are less than or equal to 5(output: "max elements less than 5" ).
Please help construct this code.

Are you trying to determine if most of the values in the vector are greater than or equal to 5? That's how I understood the description but your 2nd example doesn't follow that rule so I'm confused.
@Adam_Danz its my mistake....I corrected it now. :)

a = [6 7 4 8 9];
val = numel(a);
if sum(a >= val) > val/2
disp(['Max elements greater than or equal to: ' num2str(val)]);
else
disp(['Max elements less than: ' num2str(val)]);
end
change the vector 'a' as you wish
