Q:
# Which box plot represents the data?135, 149, 156, 112, 134, 141, 154, 116, 134, 156

Accepted Solution

A:

To get the box plot we begin by arranging the data in ascending order:

135, 149, 156, 112, 134, 141, 154, 116, 134, 156

rearranging we get:

112,116, 134, 134, 135, 141, 149, 154, 156, 156

then:

Lower value=112

Q1=134

Median=(135+141)/2=138

Q3=154

Largest value=156

The second figure is the correct figure.

135, 149, 156, 112, 134, 141, 154, 116, 134, 156

rearranging we get:

112,116, 134, 134, 135, 141, 149, 154, 156, 156

then:

Lower value=112

Q1=134

Median=(135+141)/2=138

Q3=154

Largest value=156

The second figure is the correct figure.
