Mean = 156 12 13 x n μ = = = Median = Value of the middle term = 12 Mode = Most repeated value There are two modes 12, 26 b. Find the range and standard deviation of this data. SOLUTION Range = Max value-Min value = 26-1=25 Standard deviation 2 ( ) 772 8.02 1 13 1 x n σ - = = = - - c. Construct the five number summary and the box and whisker plot for the scores. Identify each of the five summary numbers. SOLUTION The five number summary Minimum value = 1 First quartile 1 Q =7 Median = 12 Third quartile 3 Q = 16 Maximum value = 26
