Solution 27E

Step1 of 3:

From the given problem we have a data set and it is given below:

 2.8 2 3 3 3.2 5.9 3.5 3.6 1.8 5.5 3.7 5.2 3.8 3.9 6 2.5 4 4.1 4.6 5 5.5 6

Here our goal is:

a). We need to find quartiles

b). We need to draw a box-and-whisker plot that represents the data set.

Step2 of 3:

a).

1). The value of is obtained from Excel by using the function “=quartile(Select all dat, 1).”

Hence,

Similarly,

2). The value of is obtained from Excel by using the function “=quartile(Select all dat, 2).”

Hence,

3). The value of is...
