Box and Whisker Plot 5 Number Summary for Odd Numbered Data Sets

Finding the Median of Odd Numbered Data Sets
Once the pieces of data (numbers) are arranged in order from least to greatest, then the middle number of the set is the median [3, 4, 4, 5, 8, 8, 9, 10,11] The median for this set of data = 8

Odd Numbered Data Sets The median splits the data set in half.
[3, 4, 4, 5,] 8, [8, 9, 10,11] From here we can then find the upper and lower quartiles as well as the upper and lower extremes.

The lower quartile for this set of data = 4
The lower quartile is the median of the bottom half of the data (to the left of the median). If the part of the set we are considering has an even number pieces of data, you must find the mean of the two middle pieces of data to get the lower quartile. [3, 4, 4, 5,] 8, [8, 9, 10,11] 4 + 4 = divided by 2 = 4 The lower quartile for this set of data = 4

Upper Quartile The upper quartile is the median of the top half of the data (to the right of the median). If the part of the set we are considering has an even number pieces of data, you must find the mean of the two middle pieces of data to get the upper quartile. [3, 4, 4, 5,] 8, [8, 9, 10,11] = 19; 19 divided by 2 = 9.5 The upper quartile for this data set = 9.5

Interquartile Range To find the interquartile range, subtract the lower quartile from the upper quartile. [3, 4,] 4 [4, 5,] 8, [8, 9] 9.5 [10,11] Upper Quartile – Lower Quartile = _____ 9.5 – 4 = 5.5 The intequartile range for this data = 5.5

Lower Extreme The lower extreme is the lowest number in the data set.
[3, 4,] 4 [4, 5,] 8, [8, 9] 9.5 [10,11] The lower extreme for this data set = 3

Upper Extreme The upper extreme is the highest number in the data set.
[3, 4,] 4 [4, 5,] 8, [8, 9] 9.5 [10,11] The upper extreme for this data set = 11

Range The range of the data can be found by subtracting the lower extreme from the upper extreme. [3, 4,] 4 [4, 5,] 8, [8, 9] 9.5 [10,11] 11 – 3 = 8 The range for this data set = 8

5 Number Summary Median = 8 Lower Quartile = 4 Upper Quartile = 9.5
[3, 4, 4, 5, 8, 8, 9, 10,11] Median = 8 Lower Quartile = 4 Upper Quartile = 9.5 Lower Extreme = 3 Upper Extreme = 11

5 Number Summary for Even Numbered Data Sets
Box and Whisker Plot 5 Number Summary for Even Numbered Data Sets

Even Numbered Data Sets
If the data set has an even number of pieces of data, we find the mean of the two middle numbers to find the median of the set 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 19, 20 7 + 8 = 15 15 divided by 2 = 7.5 The median is 7.5 If the data set has an even number of pieces of data, we find the mean of the two middle numbers to find the median of the set 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 19, 20 7 + 8 = 15 15 divided by 2 = 7.5 The median is 7.5

Even Numbered Data Sets
The median splits the data set in half. [ 2, 4, 5, 6, 7] 7.5 [8, 9, 11, 19, 20] From here we can then find the upper and lower quartiles as well as the upper and lower extremes.

Lower Quartile The lower quartile is the median of the bottom half of the data (to the left of the median). [ 2, 4, 5, 6, 7] 7.5 [8, 9, 11, 19, 20] Lower Quartile for this data = 5

Upper Quartile The upper quartile is the median of the top half of the data (to the right of the median). [ 2, 4, 5, 6, 7] 7.5 [8, 9, 11, 19, 20] The upper quartile for this data set = 11

Interquartile Range To find the interquartile range, subtract the lower quartile from the upper quartile. Upper Quartile – Lower Quartile = _____ [ 2, 4, 5, 6, 7] 7.5 [8, 9, 11, 19, 20] 11 – 5 =6 The intequartile range for this data = 6

Lower Extreme The lower extreme is the lowest number in the data set.
[ 2, 4, 5, 6, 7] 7.5 [8, 9, 11, 19, 20] The lower extreme for this data set = 2

Upper Extreme The upper extreme is the highest number in the data set.
[ 2, 4, 5, 6, 7] 7.5 [8, 9, 11, 19, 20] The upper extreme for this data set = 20

Range The range of the data can be found by subtracting the lower extreme from the upper extreme. [ 2, 4, 5, 6, 7] 7.5 [8, 9, 11, 19, 20] 20 – 2 = 18 The range for this data set = 18

Even Numbered Data Sets
[ 2, 4, 5, 6, 7] 7.5 [8, 9, 11, 19, 20] Median = 7.5 Lower Quartile = 5 Upper Quartile = 11 Upper Extreme = 20 Lower Extreme = 2

The median is the mean of 6 and 7
Sample Problem What is the median? 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12 The median is the mean of 6 and 7 The median is 6.5

Sample Problem Remember, the median splits the data set in half
[1,2,3,4,5,6] 6.5 [7,8,9,10,11,12]

Sample Problem What are the quartiles?
[1,2,3,4,5,6] 6.5 [7,8,9,10,11,12] Remember, if there are an even number of pieces of data in your set, the median is the mean of the middle two numbers

Sample Problem What are the quartiles?
[1,2,3,4,5,6] 6.5 [7,8,9,10,11,12] Upper Quartile = 3.5 Lower Quartile = 8.5

Sample Problem What is the upper extreme? What is the lower extreme?
[1,2,3,4,5,6] 6.5 [7,8,9,10,11,12] Upper Extreme = 12 Lower Extreme = 1

Sample Problem What is the 5 number summary? Median = 6.5
Lower Quartile = 3.5 Upper Quartile = 8.5 Upper Extreme = 12 Lower Extreme = 1
