    quartiles correspond to the percentiles; if that helps :)

    percentiles takes the data and divides it up into individual percents; a quartile is just 25 percentiles

    spose we have just 4 data points: 34, 55, 56, 87; we find the percentile below 55 by counting the number of data points below 55 and dividing it by the number of data points

    So for e.x if the median of all the data is two points of the same value say their are two 31's and an even amount of data points would include 31 into each quartile or "X" them out and use the other data points from each quartile?
