    It's not symmetrical either

    it's negatively skewed, because the lower quartile is farther from the median than the upper quartile.

    @TylerDaPro almost none of that is correct. It asks for a 5 number summary. The five numbers you're looking for are minimum - lowest number first quartile - median of all numbers less than the median median - middle number 3rd quartile - median of all numbers greater than the median maximum - highest number You can get them after you put the numbers in order or use this calculator http://www.alcula.com/calculators/statistics/dispersion/ You have 2 sets of data, so there will be 2 five number summaries. Do the calculation for state A, then do it again for State B.
