Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, the whiskers only extend so far and outliers may be single solitary points

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See the picture, the ihghest and lowest number, also known as extremes, get points on them and lines drawn to them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It depends how far the outlier is, but the whiskers will not always connect

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how far is too far for the outleir? like 1.5 times the interquartile range right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah 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/boxandwhiskerplot.png
