in box and whisker plots, do you draw a line to the outliers (as your whisker)?

    or do you just plot a point, but don't draw a line to it?

    You draw lines to both outlier points, single lines, not dotted

    are your outliers also your lowest or highest quartile?

    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

    you'll see that the outliers are on their own
