The table below shows the number of hours some business people in two states spend in meetings each week:
State A
21 23 24 22 24 25 23 23 22
State B
24 22 20 23 23 50 20 46 21
Part A: Create a fivenumber summary and calculate the interquartile range for the two sets of data. (6 points)
Part B: Are the box plots symmetric? Justify your answer. (4 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Maybe this will help clarify. The interquartile range (IQR) is a measure of variability, based on dividing a data set into quartiles. Quartiles divide a rankordered data set into four equal parts. The values that divide each part are called the first, second, and third quartiles; and they are denoted by Q1, Q2, and Q3, respectively. Q1 is the "middle" value in the first half of the rankordered data set. Q2 is the median value in the set. Q3 is the "middle" value in the second half of the rankordered data set. The interquartile range is equal to Q3 minus Q1. Your data for State A in rank order: 21 22 22 Q1 23 23 Q2 23 24 Q3 24 25 So IQR is 2422=2 5number Summary Min = 20 Q1 = 21 Q2 = 23 Q3 = 24 Max = 50 Box Plot IS Symmetric: dw:1435978799271:dw For State B: 20 20 21 Q1 22 23 Q2 23 24 Q3 46 50 IQR = Q3Q1=3 5number Summary Min = 20 Q1 = 21 Q2 = 23 Q3 = 24 Max =50 Box Plot is NOT symmetric: dw:1435978515233:dw Does this make sense?
