so how would you explain how to find the 1st Q?
ideally, a quartile is a position within the data set; so we divide it in quarters and find the 1st quarter

quartiles divide a data set into 4 equal parts
1. find the median. The position is found by using (n + 1)/2 n = number of data scores
in your example there are 18 scores Position (18 +1)/2 = 9.5
the median is between th 9th and 10th score
(62 + 63)/2 = 62.5 the median is 62.5
Lower Quartile of Q1.
find the middle of the lower half of the data
53, 55, 55, 55, 57, 57, 60, 60, 62
9 scores the median position is (9 + 1)/2 = 5
the 5th score is the lower quartile 57
Upper Quartile of Q3
63, 63, 64, 67, 68, 68, 70, 72, 73
9 scores so Q3 is in position 5 Q3 = 68
The interquartile range is the distance between Q3 and Q1
IQR = 68 - 57
IQR = 11
