A quartile is a given section in a range of data. To find the quartile, you must first find the median. Then find the "median of the median", using these to separate your data into sections, giving you a total of four sections of data.

Mean, median and mode are ways to find averages. The mode is the most common answer in a set of data. The median the number that is in the middle when the numbers are put in order. The mean is the statical average.

The mean of a set of data is all the values in that data added together and then divided by the number of values. For instance, if you had the data set 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, you would add them all up to get 22, and then divide by 5 to get 4.4 which is the mean. The median is the middle value of all data values. In the above data set, that is 4, and so 4 would be the median. Mean and median are alike in that they both attempt to find the "middle" of the data, and are both considered averages.

take the average of them so say my points are: 1,2,3,3,4,6,7,8,9,9 then the median is between 4 and 6 so (4+6)/2 is 5

For an even number of data points the median is the average of the middle two values. I.e. add the two numbers and divide by 2.

The median of a data set is the number that is literally in the middle. For example: The median of the number set 1,1,3,4,7, is 3 because it is in the physical middle of the set of numbers. Note: To find a median, the numbers MUST be in written in order the median of 2,6,3, is not 6. You must rearrange them like: 2,3,6 and we can see 3 is the median

Arrange the data in increasing order and count the number of data points = N. Find the integer K = N/2 or (N+1)/2. The Kth number in the ordered set is the median. Now consider only the numbers from the smallest to the median and find the median of this subset. This is the lower quartile = Q1. Then consider only the numbers from the original median to the largest. Find the median of this subset. It is the upper quartile = Q3. Then IQR = Q3 - Q1

Find the median of set of data 1 6 19 24 26 31 33 46

The median is the mean of the middle two. For example, find the median of the set {1, 3, 4, 6, 9, 10, 15, 20}. There are 8 items in the data set, so the median is the mean of the middle two. The middle two are the 4th and 5th data items: 6 & 9 median = mean of 6 & 9 = (6 + 9)/2 = 7.5
