Boxplots from Larger Data Sets in Appendix B. In Exercises, use the given data sets.

Pulse Rates Use the same scale to construct boxplots for the pulse rates of males and females from Data Set 1. Use the boxplots to compare the two data sets.

Solution 33BSC

Step 1 of 3</p>

From the given information, the pulse rates for males (beats per minute) are

and for females are

Step 2 of 3</p>

The following MINITAB instruction set used to plot the box plot:

1) First enter the given data in columns such as C1 and C2

2) Select Graph, then select Box plot and then select the Simple option for multiple box plots

3) Enter C1and C2 in the Variables box

4) Click Ok.

The multiple box plots for the given data sets as follows:

The 5-number summary from the drawn box plot for males is minimum data value 46 beats per minute, first quartile value is 60 beats per minute, second quartile value is 67 beats per minute, third quartile value is 74 beats per minute, and maximum value is 90 beats per minute.

The 5-number summary from the drawn box plot for females is minimum data value 56 beats per minute, first quartile value is 72 beats per minute, second quartile value is 77 beats per minute, third quartile value is 82 beats per minute, and maximum value is 104 beats per minute.
