First thing you should do is figure out what the median is of the data you were given. Arrange the data from lowest to highest, and find the middle number. If you already did that, just let me know what you got.

26 @jtvatsim
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
Alright, that's what I got too. That rules out choice C for sure.
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
The data ranges from 20 to 32 so we should make sure the box plot actually matches that description.
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
You should see that only one box plot actually does this. :) Can you see it?
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
And by "ranges" I mean...

Those two vertical dashes mark the lowest and highest numbers.

Yes is see it
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
Alright, so which choice do you think it is based on that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
D
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
Careful, that one shows a highest number of 35. Is 35 in our data?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no
anonymous
  • anonymous
It would be C
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
Ah... but then the median is wrong. AHHH!!! lol :)
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
Alright, big breath.... And let's see... we want a median of 26, a low of 20, and a high of 32. We need three things to work.

can you explain why its A so i know
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
So, here's what I would have done. I would draw my own picture like this...

  • jtvatsim
I don't really know anything about the rectangle part, other than that the middle line has to be on 26.
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
So, I would go through and find all the pictures that have a low of 20.
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
OK, they all do. So that didn't help.
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
Next, I would go and find all the pictures that have a middle of 26.
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
It looks like A, B, and D.
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
Finally, I would find all the pictures with a high of 32.
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
Only B has this. The answer must be B.
jtvatsim
  • jtvatsim
Does that help? Any questions on that process? :)

  • anonymous
