    @kropot72 so, hows this for a answer? a measure of variability, based on dividing a data set into quartiles.

    It is not possible for me to judge how much detail is needed and how much can be omitted. To be on the safe side, I would assume that an explanation is being given to someone who has no prior knowledge of quartiles.
