    five number summary is (min, Q1, median, Q2, max) so, looking at the 5-number summary you have, we can see that the median is 22 we have an odd number of observations (33) so the 22 MUST be an entry in order for the median to be 22

    so, your data will look something like this (16 entries below), 22, (16 entries above 22)
