Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Male and female high school students reported how many hours they worked each week in summer jobs. The data is represented in the following box plots: two box plots shown. The top one is labeled Males. Minimum at 1, Q1 at 3, median at 10.5, Q3 at 14, maximum at 21. The bottom box plot is labeled Females. Minimum at 0, Q1 at 15, median at 18, Q3 at 21, no maximum shown Identify any values of data that might affect the statistical measures of spread and center. The females worked more than the males, and the female Q3 equals the top of the range. The spread and center are skewed due to the fourth quartile missing with the females. There is a significant outlier at the low end for the females. The males have a high outlier, and the females have a low outlier.
