has anyone heard of the "box and whisker plot"?
statistics is math related
This actually is a math question...
If it is not math related why does it appear in all reputable Algebra I books?
it is in my math for graphing. my parents have never heard of it and i was wondering if someone could tell me if they has heard of it and tell me how to read and use them if they can
Yes. I have heard of them. What do you want to know?
it is another way to display data.
yeah, i know the parts, i want to know how to use it
I don't know what else to say except use it to help interpret sets of data.
if you know that parts, you know how to use it ....
then instead of us trying to guess where your confusion lies; try to tell us perchance how you see it as ... then we might have somehting to go off of :)
So here's some guidance on what they are, and how to construct them: http://ellerbruch.nmu.edu/cs255/jnord/boxplot.html
