What are the five numbers we need to create a box-and-whisker plot? Awesome… 1) the minimum 2) the first quartile (Q 1) 3) the median (Q 2) 4) the third quartile (Q 3) 5) the maximum

Now put the following blue M&M data down the L 1 column. Make sure you have 11 total data points for all 11 bags. Clear

If you press the right and/or left directional arrows, you can trace to the min, max, Q 1, and Q 3 values also! What is the third quartile for this data? Fantastic…Q 3 = 16! <

Make sure you have 11 total data points for all 11 bags. Y= 2 nd Now that you have the data in the calculator, press the “ 2 nd” button and then the “Y=” button to access the statistical plot screen. Notice Plot 1 is still On for the blue M&M data. Cursor down to Plot 2 and Press Enter

Graph n n n Be sure to tell the calculator that the red M&M data is coming from the L 2 list by pressing the “ 2 nd” and “ 2” buttons. Press “Graph” to see both box plots. What is wrong with our graph? We cannot see the maximum! 2 nd 2
