I sorted this using MATLAB.


1) The range = 192-154 = 38

2) Mode = 167 and 190 both have three times

3) The median is 13 th and 14th data,

the median = (168+171)/2 = 169.5

4) interquartile range,

Q1 = 26/4 data = 6.5 that is the mean of 6 th and 7 elements,

Q1 = (163+163)/2 = 163

Q3 = 3*26/4 = 19.5 that is the mean of19th and 20th elements

Q3 = (179+181)/2 = 180

 

Therefore the interquartile range = Q3-Q1

= 180 - 163 = 17
