10.2 Box-and-Whisker Plot

  • Central tendency describes the middle or a typical value of the data set and is measured using the mean, median, and mode.
  • Variability describes how spread out the data is.
  • Quartiles divide a data set into four equal parts. The third quartile minus the first quartile is the range for the middle half of the data.
  • A box-and-whisker plot shows the distribution of data. The middle half of the data is represented by a box with a vertical line at the median. the lower first and upper fourth are represented by whiskers that extend to the smallest and largest values.
Example:
Draw a box-and-whisker plot for the table below, that summarizes a veterinaian's record for kitten litters born in a given year.

Litter Size2 3 4 56
Number of Litters1 6 8 111
