    let's say we have 1,2,3,4,5 1. find median of the data set 1,2,3,4,5 median = 3 2. cross out 3 |dw:1436829630379:dw| 3. find the median of the upper (third) and lower quartiles. |dw:1436829708510:dw| third (aka upper quartile) = 4.5 do the same things that I did for the example data set and apply it to the one that you have.

    What do you mean? did you order that from least to greatest and then cross them out one-by-one?

    So that means that you need to order it from smallest to greatest by yourself...

    Sometimes the data doesn't need to be smallest to greatest, you just need to do it by yourself. It takes some time, but you just have to do it.
