4 7 7 5 2 9 7 6 8 5 8 4 1 5 2 8 7 6 6 9

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 2</p>

a) We have to find the five number summary

From the given data arrange the given values in the ascending order

1,2,2,4,4,5,5,5,6,6, 6,7,7,7,7,8,8,8,9,9

Minimum value =1

First quartile (Q1)=

                            =

                            =

                            =

                            =4+0.25(5-4)

                            =4+0.25

                            =4.25

Median  (Q2)=

                     =

                     =

                     =

                     =6+0.5(6-6)

                     =6+0

                     =6

Third quartile (Q3)=

                            =

                            =

                            =

                            =7+0.75(8-7)

                            =7+0.75

                            =7.75

Maximum value =9

Hence the five number summary is

Minimum value =1

First quartile (Q1)=4.75

Median  (Q1)=6

Third quartile (Q3)=7.75

Maximum value =9
