Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now for the 1st quartile, look at the numbers left of the median. They are 21, 22, 22, and 23. We need to find their median. Since it's an even amount of numbers, there you can't just pick it out. We have to add the 2 middle numbers and divide by 2. 1st quartile = (22 + 22)/2 = 22
