Session 4, Part B:
The Median and the Three-Number Summary

In This Part: The Median | The Three-Noodle Summary | The Three-Number Summary
Even Data Sets | Review

Now let's convert the Three-Noodle Summary to the Three-Number Summary. If they're not already there, place the three noodles -- Min, Med, and Max -- in order on the horizontal axis.

Next add a vertical number line, and mark the lengths of the three noodles.

 

Remove the noodles, and you're left with the Three-Number Summary.

 

 

Problem B5

Solution  

If we call the length of the fourth noodle N4, how does N4 compare to Min, Med, and Max? What wouldn't you know about N4 if you only knew Min, Med, and Max?
