    Yes, instead of the regular graduation every 5 years, I decided to label the location of the box (Q1, median and Q3) and the extremes of the data.

    Well, not that different, but you have to know also about quartiles. Median divides data set into two equal parts, like 12+12. Quartiles divides each halve into two equal parts. I believe that's all you need to solve the problem.

    I am sorry to hear that! :( Well, OS rules do not allow help with exams anyway, so the best way for next time is to study the material before hand. I know that sounds hard on you, but that's also why we attend school!
