Marketing: Q 1 = median of lower half = value of 3 rd ordered position Q 1 = 34.2 Q 3 : median of upper half = value of 3 rd ordered position Q 3 = 39.5 Accounting: Q 1 : Average 4 th and 5 th positions

Q 1 = 40.8 41.1 40.95 2 + = Q 3 : Average 12 th and 13 th positions Q 3 = 49.7 49.9 49.8 2 + = c. The difference between the sample means is 45.7 – 36.3 = 9.4.
