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

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
