Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you copy and paste the plots, it says the exact points: Company C shows minimum at 20, first quartile at 21, median at 22, third quartile at 24, and maximum at 28. Company D shows minimum at 19, first quartile at 20, median at 22.5, third quartile at 23.5, and maximum at 27. Since Company D's median is higher than Company C's median, does that mean that Company D would actually be the correct answer? Sorry for asking a stupid question and thank you for the help! It's just been so long since I've done this stuff.
