p th percentile of a sample: the value of a point in the data set when p is a number between 0 and 100, divides the sample so that as nearly as possible p % of the sample values are less than the p th percentile. Order the sample values from smallest to largest. Then compute the quantity p 100 ( n + 1), where n is the sample size. If this quantity is an integer, the sample value in this position is the p th per- centile. Otherwise, average the two sample values on either side. Quartiles Q 1 = lower quartile = 25% percentile = lower fourth 25 100 ( n + 1)th in the data set Q 3 = upper quartile = 75% percentile = upper fourth 75 100 ( n + 1)th in the data set IQR = Q 3 - Q 1 Box Plots Graphs are based on the five number summary: minimum, Q 1 , median, Q 3 , maximum Steps in the Construction of a Boxplot Compute the median, Q 1 and Q 3 . Indicate these with horizontal lines. Draw vertical lines to complete the box.

    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.

    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.

    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.
