The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

By transferring the numerical data from the cumulative frequency curve into a box and whiskers plot.

What does the whisker in a box-and-whisker plot represent?

The whiskers mark the ends of the range of figures - they are the furthest outliers. * * * * * No. Outliers are not part of a box and whiskers plot. The whiskers mark the ends of the minimum and maximum observations EXCLUDING outliers. Outliers, if any, are marked with an X.


Who invented the box-and-whiskers-plot?

It was invented by the American statistician John Tukey in 1977


What is the smallest value in a box-and-whiskers plot called?

The minimum - or outlier-adjusted minimum.


When do you use a box-plot?

A box plot may be used at a preliminary stage to determine the centre and spread of a set of data. The box [and whiskers] plot measures the central point by the median and the range from the maximum and minimum or the quartile points.


What is a representation of data that shows the extremes and quartiles of a data set?

Probably the box and whiskers plot, but there are others.


What if the data doesnt have a median how do we make a box and whisker plot?

If the data are quantitative they must have a median. If there is no median it is only because the data are qualitative and, in that case, a box and whiskers plot is meaningless.


How are outliers of a data set related to the whiskers of its box plot?

Outliers on a modified box plot will be noted away from the ends of the whiskers, as they are not considered part of the range, due to the fact that they are so different from the rest of the data. In a regular box plot, the lowest value, whether it is an outlier or not, will be the beginning of the 1st whisker, the highest value, whether an outlier or not will be the end of the 2nd whisker.


What are four parts of the box and whisker plot called?

There are 5 (not 4) parts of an elementary box and whiskers plot. From left to right, they are: minimum, lower quartile, median, upper quartile, and maximum. A more advanced version of plot is used for data containing outliers. In such cases the whiskers extend to the minimum or maximum EXCLUDING the outlier(s) and the outliers themselves are marked with Xs - beyond the scope of the whiskers.


Is a stem and leaf plot the same as a box and whiskers plot?

No, they are two different things. Mainly because the Box And Whisker Plot has a different technique and focuses on highs and lows. The Stem and Leaf Plot has to do with key codes, grouping numbers, and amounts.
