it is a bit of work. We can do state 1 (it is the same work for state 2, but different numbers)
1) can you sort the numbers small to big?

state a
21 22 22 23 23 23 24 24 25

- phi

next find the middle number, that is called the median

- anonymous

23

stae b 20 20 21 22 23 23 24 46 50

- phi

so far we have 3 of the numbers: smallest, median and biggest

- anonymous

yes

- phi

now look at the lower half and find the median of it.

- anonymous

23 as well

- phi

we want the middle number between the smallest and the median
21 22 22 23 *23*
the 2nd 23 is the median

- anonymous

yes !

- phi

I get 22

- phi

and next the middle number between the median and the largest
23 23 24 24 25

- anonymous

it would be 24 ? for that

- phi

yes, so the 5 numbers for state 1 are
21, 22, 23, 24, 25

- anonymous

okay so 21 22 23 24 and 25 or the five number summary for state 1 what does iqr mean again and what is it for state 2 plz

- phi

for state 2, what is the middle number after you sort small to big?

- anonymous

- phi

yes 23 is the median for state 2
now find the Q1 which is the middle number between the smallest and the median

- anonymous

20

- phi

the smallest to median are
20 20 21 22 23
the middle number is 21

- anonymous
