or do you just plot a point, but don't draw a line to it?
Yes You Do
You draw lines to both outlier points, single lines, not dotted
are your outliers also your lowest or highest quartile?
i mean lower extreme and higher extreme
No, outliers are first and last numbers

No, the whiskers only extend so far and outliers may be single solitary points
is it just me or is this kind of solving this question somewhat of a pain
so you don't draw lines to the outlier?
See the picture, the ihghest and lowest number, also known as extremes, get points on them and lines drawn to them
but the outliers, like ones that are way lower than the low quartile or way higher than the high quartile, do you draw lines to those? Those are the lower and higher extremes
It depends how far the outlier is, but the whiskers will not always connect
how far is too far for the outleir? like 1.5 times the interquartile range right?
yeah that sounds right (I'd need to look it up), but take a look at something like this http://media.texample.net/tikz/examples/PNG/box-and-whisker-plot.png
ok thanks, that makes sense now :)
you'll see that the outliers are on their own
