Q:
# Create a box and whisker plot for the average daily temperatures in Tucson, Arizona, in December: 67, 57, 52, 51, 64, 58, 67, 58, 55, 59, 66, 50, 57, 62, 58, 50, 58, 50, 60, 63

Accepted Solution

A:

A box and whisker plot creates a five-point summary from the given numbers.

First, we'll arrange the number sequence from lowest to highest - 0,50,50,51,52,55,57,57,58,58,58,58,59,60,62,63,64,66,67,67.

Second, we'll find the median Q2 - (58+58) / 2 = 58

Third, we'll take the middle numbers before the median as our lower quartile Q1 - (52+55) / 2 = 53.5

Fourth, we'll take the middle numbers after the median as our upper quartile Q3 - (62+63) / 2 = 62.5

Then we graph (see attached picture)
