2 PERCENTILES Division of ordered data into: halves: median quarters: quartiles 100ths : percentiles Quartiles middle observation above the median and below the median Q1 = 25 th percentile Q2 = 50 th percentile = median Q3 = 75 th percentile
3 Ex. 1 - Quartiles 1. Data: 7, 23, 75, 82, 34, 91, 10 2. Put it in order: 7, 10, 23, 34, 75, 82, 91 1. Find the median: 34 2. Below the median: 7, 10, 23 Lower Quartile Q1 = 10 3. Above the median: 75, 82, 91 Upper Quartile Q3 = 82
