## What is the maximum number on a box plot?

At the ends of the box, you” find the first quartile (the 25% mark) and the third quartile (the 75% mark). The far left of the chart (at the end of the left “whisker”) is the minimum (the smallest number in the set) and the far right is the maximum (the largest number in the set).

## What numbers make up a box and whisker plot?

A box and whisker plot—also called a box plot—displays the five-number summary of a set of data. The five-number summary is the minimum, first quartile, median, third quartile, and maximum.

**How do you read a box and whisker plot?**

When the median is in the middle of the box, and the whiskers are about the same on both sides of the box, then the distribution is symmetric. When the median is closer to the bottom of the box, and if the whisker is shorter on the lower end of the box, then the distribution is positively skewed (skewed right).

**Where is Q4 in a box plot?**

So the top point of the first quarter of the data points is “Q1”, and so forth. Note that Q1 is also the middle number for the first half of the list, Q2 is also the middle number for the whole list, Q3 is the middle number for the second half of the list, and Q4 is the largest value in the list.

### Which box plot has the largest range?

Notice that neither boxplot has a left whisker. The minimums for both boxplots are about the same. 7/13 to 7/15 has the largest maximum, the largest median, the largest range and largest interquartile range.

### How do you calculate a box plot?

Plot a symbol at the median and draw a box between the lower and upper quartiles. Calculate the interquartile range (the difference between the upper and lower quartile) and call it IQ. The line from the lower quartile to the minimum is now drawn from the lower quartile to the smallest point that is greater than L1.

**What does the length of a box plot mean?**

The box length gives an indication of the sample variability and the line across the box shows where the sample is centred. The position of the box in its whiskers and the position of the line in the box also tells us whether the sample is symmetric or skewed, either to the right or left.

**How do you find the quartiles in a box and whisker plot?**

The first step in constructing a box-and-whisker plot is to first find the median (Q2), the lower quartile (Q1) and the upper quartile (Q3) of a given set of data. You are now ready to find the interquartile range (IQR). The interquartile range is the difference between the upper quartile and the lower quartile.

#### How do you find Q2 and Q3?

There are four different formulas to find quartiles:

- Formula for Lower quartile (Q1) = N + 1 multiplied by (1) divided by (4)
- Formula for Middle quartile (Q2) = N + 1 multiplied by (2) divided by (4)
- Formula for Upper quartile (Q3) = N + 1 multiplied by (3) divided by (4)

#### What is Q3 in a box plot?

Q3 – quartile 3, the median of the upper half of the data set. IQR – interquartile range, the difference from Q3 to Q1. Extreme Values – the smallest and largest values in a data set.

**What is the top 25% of a box plot?**

The 25th percentile is the value at which 25% of the data values are below this value. Thus, the middle 50% of the data values fall between the 25th percentile and the 75th percentile. The distance between the upper (75th percentile) and lower (25th percentile) lines of the box is called the inter-quartile range (IQR).

**How do you read plot points?**

Points are identified by stating their coordinates in the form of (x, y). Note that the x-coordinate always comes first. For example, in the figure we’ve been using, we have identified both the x and y coordinate for each of the points B and D. The x-coordinate of point B is 100.

## What does the box and whisker plot format represent?

The data represented in box and whisker plot format can be seen in Figure 1. Left figure: The center represents the middle 50%, or 50th percentile of the data set, and is derived using the lower and upper quartile values. The median value is displayed inside the “box.”

## What is BYJU’S box and whisker plot calculator tool?

BYJU’S online box and whisker plot calculator tool make the calculation faster, and it displays the quartile value in a fraction of seconds. How to Use the Box and Whisker Plot Calculator?

**How to draw a box and whisker diagram?**

To draw a box and whisker diagram, we need to find: Step 1: The smallest value in the data is called the minimum value. Step 2: The value below the lower 25% of data contained, called the first quartile. Step 3: Median value from the given set of data. Step 4: The value above the lower 25% of data contained, called the third quartile.

**What is a box plot in statistics?**

It is also called just a box plot. These are mostly used for data interpretation. It is one of the types of graphical methods which displays the variation of the data in the dataset. We can also use the histogram to display the data. But, histogram provides a sufficient display.
