    In my book it says "Outliers are points that don't fit the pattern of the rest of the data"

    thats the def i was raised with ... these days they have some formula like: mean +- IQR(1.5) defines the interval that is NOT ourliers

    and 6*1.5 is 9 so by one definition, an outlier is any value that is NOT between q1-9, and q3+9

    no numbers are less than 8.1 any on the high side?

    So 33.2 and 34 are outliers?

    So the answer is D?

    if we accept the definition using the IQR yes. so our box plot should have 2 little open dots on the high side

    D would be my best educated guess as well
