yes

- mathmate

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.

i do know

- anonymous

ut the question is asking somthin differ

- mathmate

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.

- mathmate

*half

- anonymous

so is the answer 4 schools

- anonymous

?????????

- mathmate

Explain how you got 4 schools?

- anonymous

because i conted from quartile 1 to 0 and got 4

- anonymous

*counted

- mathmate

"Median divides data set into two equal parts, like 12+12.
Quartiles divides each half into two equal parts."

- anonymous

6 is the answer

- mathmate

So each quartile has how many schools?

- anonymous

??

- mathmate

or
"So each quartile contains how many schools?"

- mathmate

yes, six is correct.

- anonymous

yaayyyyy thx

- anonymous

i missed my exam though

- mathmate

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!
