Box – and – Whisker Plots

-a method of displaying and interpreting a data set -data is first arranged into numeric order ( small to large )

Box – and – Whisker Plots -a method of displaying and interpreting a data set -data is first arranged into numeric order ( small to large ) -then the MEDIAN is found

Box – and – Whisker Plots -a method of displaying and interpreting a data set -data is first arranged into numeric order ( small to large ) -then the MEDIAN is found -data is then separated into QUARTILES

Box – and – Whisker Plots -a method of displaying and interpreting a data set -data is first arranged into numeric order ( small to large ) -then the MEDIAN is found -data is then separated into QUARTILES EXAMPLE # 1 : The data set given are the daily temperatures for a week. 85, 70, 75, 87, 83, 76, 80
