what happens if there is a mode in your set of data but you have to do a box plot?

Guest May 3, 2017

The mode of a data set has absolutely no relevance to a box plot. A box plot looks like this:


|(minimum value)---------|(lower quartile/Q1)=====|(median)=======|(upper quartile/Q3)----------------------|(maximum value)


Fast facts about a box plot:

IQR (inter-quartile range) = Q3 - Q1

Range = Maximum - Minimum

Lower half of the data is in between the minimum and the median

The upper half of the data is between the median and the maximum

The middle half of the data is in between Q1 and Q3.
