1 Learning Standards HSS-ID.A. HSS-ID.A COMMON CORE.2 Numbers of First Cousins Box-and-Whisker Plots Essential Question How can you use a box-and-whisker plot to describe a data set? Drawing a Box-and-Whisker Plot Work with a partner. The numbers of first cousins of the students in a ninth-grade class are shown. A box-and-whisker plot is one way to represent the data visually. a. Order the data on a strip of grid paper with 24 equally spaced boxes. Fold the paper in half to find the median. b. Fold the paper in half again to divide the data into four groups. Because there are 24 numbers in the data set, each group should have 6 numbers. Find the, the, the first, and the third. first median third c. Explain how the box-and-whisker plot shown represents the data set. first median third MODELING WITH MATHEMATICS To be proficient in math, you need to identify important quantities in a practical situation Communicate Your Answer 2. How can you use a box-and-whisker plot to describe a data set? 3. Interpret each box-and-whisker plot. a. body mass indices (BMI) of students in a ninth-grade class Number of first cousins b. heights of roller coasters at an amusement park BMI Height (feet) Section.2 Box-and-Whisker Plots 593

2 .2 Lesson What You Will Learn Core Vocabulary box-and-whisker plot, p. 594, p. 594 five-number summary, p. 594 inter range, p. 595 STUDY TIP Sometimes, the first is called the lower and the third is called the upper. Use box-and-whisker plots to represent data sets. Interpret box-and-whisker plots. Use box-and-whisker plots to compare data sets. Using Box-and-Whisker Plots to Represent Data Sets Core Concept Box-and-Whisker Plot A box-and-whisker plot shows the variability of a data set along a number line using the, the, and the s of the data. Quartiles divide the data set into four equal parts. The median (second, Q2) divides the data set into two halves. The median of the lower half is the first, Q. The median of the upper half is the third, Q3. first, Q whisker median, Q2 box The five numbers that make up a box-and-whisker plot are called the five-number summary of the data set. third, Q3 whisker Making a Box-and-Whisker Plot Make a box-and-whisker plot that represents the ages of the members of a backpacking expedition in the mountains. 24, 30, 30, 22, 25, 22, 8, 25, 28, 30, 25, 27 SOLUTION Step Order the data. Find the median and the s. lower half upper half first, 23 median, 25 third, 29 Step 2 Draw a number line that includes the and s. Graph points above the number line for the five-number summary. Step 3 Draw a box using Q and Q3. Draw a line through the median. Draw whiskers from the box to the and s Age Monitoring Progress Help in English and Spanish at BigIdeasMath.com. A basketball player scores 4, 6, 20, 5, 22, 30, 6, and 28 points during a tournament. Make a box-and-whisker plot that represents the data. 594 Chapter Data Analysis and Displays

3 STUDY TIP A long whisker or box indicates that the data are more spread out. Interpreting Box-and-Whisker Plots The figure shows how data are distributed in a box-and-whisker plot. of the data are 4 in each whisker. of the data 2 are in the box. of the data are 4 in each whisker. first, Q median, third Q2, Q3 Another measure of variation for a data set is the inter range (IQR), which is the difference of the third, Q3, and the first, Q. It represents the range of the middle half of the data. Interpreting a Box-and-Whisker Plot The box-and-whisker plot represents the lengths (in seconds) of the songs played by a rock band at a concert Song length (seconds) a. Find and interpret the range of the data. b. Describe the distribution of the data. c. Find and interpret the inter range of the data. d. Are the data more spread out below Q or above Q3? Explain. SOLUTION a. The is 60. The is 300. So, the range is = 40 seconds. This means that the song lengths vary by no more than 40 seconds. b. Each whisker represents 25% of the data. The box represents 50% of the data. So, 25% of the song lengths are between 60 and 220 seconds. 50% of the song lengths are between 220 and 280 seconds. 25% of the song lengths are between 280 and 300 seconds. c. IQR = Q3 Q = = 60 So, the inter range is 60 seconds. This means that the middle half of the song lengths vary by no more than 60 seconds. d. The left whisker is longer than the right whisker. So, the data below Q are more spread out than data above Q3. Monitoring Progress Use the box-and-whisker plot in Example. Help in English and Spanish at BigIdeasMath.com 2. Find and interpret the range and inter range of the data. 3. Describe the distribution of the data. Section.2 Box-and-Whisker Plots 595

4 STUDY TIP If you can draw a line through the median of a box-and-whisker plot, and each side is approximately a mirror image of the other, then the distribution is symmetric. Using Box-and-Whisker Plots to Compare Data Sets A box-and-whisker plot shows the shape of a distribution. Core Concept Shapes of Box-and-Whisker Plots Skewed left The left whisker is longer than the right whisker. Most of the data are on the right side of the plot. Symmetric The whiskers are about the same length. The median is in the middle of the plot. Skewed right The right whisker is longer than the left whisker. Most of the data are on the left side of the plot. Comparing Box-and-Whisker Plots The double box-and-whisker plot represents the test scores for your class and your friend s class. Your class Friend s class Test score a. Identify the shape of each distribution. b. Which test scores are more spread out? Explain. SOLUTION a. For your class, the left whisker is longer than the right whisker, and most of the data are on the right side of the plot. For your friend s class, the whisker lengths are equal, and the median is in the middle of the plot. So, the distribution for your class is skewed left, and the distribution for your friend s class is symmetric. b. The range and inter range of the test scores in your friend s class are greater than the range and inter range in your class. So, the test scores in your friend s class are more spread out.
