We need to construct a boxplot for each data set.

Using Minitab, the box plot for sample  is given below:

Step to create the box plot in Minitab:

  1. On the opening of Minitab, you will get session handler and worksheet like Excel worksheet.
  2. Enter the data into the worksheet (in this case Sample A).
  3. After entering the data go to a menu called Graph in menu panel.
  4. In the Graph menu select option Box Plots, you will get one window of Boxplots.
  5. Under the Boxplots window,  and select the simple graph option.
  6. After doing this, you will get another which will contain all the variables you have entered in the worksheet.
  7. Select the Sample A variable as Graph variables.
  8. After everything entered correctly, press ok and you will get the Boxplot of your data.
  9. Right click on the graph you have just created and select the copy graph option.
