interquartile range or IQR
Interquartile range denoted IQR.
Graphing to determine difference between third and first quartile as well as to find the median between the two. Also known as semi-interquartile range.
A quartile divides a grouping into four. The first quartile will have the first 25% of the group, the second quartile will have the second 25% of the group, the third quartile will have the third 25% of the group and the last quartile will have the last 25% of the group. For example if a classroom had 20 students who had all taken a test, you could line them up, the top 5 marks would be in the first quartile, the next five would be in the second quartile, the next 5 would be in the third quartile, and the 5 students with the lowest marks would be in the last quartile. Similarly, a percentile divides a grouping, except the group is divided into 100. Each 1% represent 1 percentile.
how do you find the interquartile range of this data
A measure that is not influenced by outliers. Median and IQR are examples of resistant measures. Median is the middle of the ordered list. IQR, which stands for inter quartile range, is the difference between the first quartile and third quartiles.
the IQR is the third quartile minus the first quartile.
first quartile (Q1) : Total number of term(N)/4 = Nth term third quartile (Q3): 3 x (N)/4th term
Roughly speaking, finding the third quartile is similar to finding the median. First, use the median to split the data set into two equal halves. Then the third quartile is the median of the upper half. Similarly, the first quartile is the median of the lower half.
If this is the only information you have, the answer would be somewhere around 125. Usually, you would find the third quartile by first finding the median. Then find the median of all of the numbers between the median and the largest number, which is the third quartile.
The value of any element in the third quartile will be greater than the value of any element in the first quartile. But both quartiles will have exactly the same number of elements in them: 250.
range: 32; first quartile 17; third quartile: 34
First Quartile = 43 Third Qaurtile = 61
yes, if all the data is the same number; when the range is zero. * * * * * That is not true. You need 25% of the values to be small, then 50% identical values, followed by 25% large values. Then the lower (first) quartile will be the same as the upper (third) quartile. The inter-quartile range (IQR) will be zero but the overall range can be as large as you like.
The sides of the box are the quartile values: the left is the first quartile and the right is the third quartile. The width, therefore is the interquartile range.
The first quartile is the value such that a quarter of the data are smaller than that value and three quarters are larger. Since there are 8 observations, the quartile will be between the second and the third smallest values. Therefore, Q1 = (7+15)/2 = 11
242 is the first quartile. 347 is the third quartile.
If a set of data are ordered by size, then the lower quartile is a value such that a quarter of the data are smaller than it. The upper quartile is a value such that a quarter of the data are larger than it. Interquartile means between the quartiles.
