29 2.49 a For 16 n = , the position of the median is 0.5( 1) 8.5 n += and the positions of the quartiles are 0.25( 4.25 n and 0.75( 1) 12.75 n . The lower quartile is ¼ the way between the 4 th and 5 th measurements and the upper quartile is ¾ the way between the 12 th and 13 th measurements. The sorted measurements are shown below.
