What is the median for the given data and does 43 lie in the lower quartile:

For the month of march the number of cars gievn speeding tickets was as follows: 56, 67, 43, 56, 87, 37, 76, 55, 29, 65, 84, 74, 46, 58, 61, 40, 43, 60, 51, 77, 53, 47, 50, 81, 61, 44, 55, 54, 76, 39, 77

The number of speeding tickets given on each day of the month of March is: 56, 67, 43, 56, 87, 37, 76, 55, 29, 65, 84, 74, 46, 58, 61, 40, 43, 60, 51, 77, 53, 47, 50, 81, 61

Arranging the data in ascending order: 29 37 40 43 43 46 47 50 51 53 55 56 **56** 58 60 61 61 65 67 74 76 77 81 84 87

The value 56 divides the data points into two sets. This is the median.

The lower quartile is 47

If the person is caught speeding on a day when 43 tickets were issued it lies in the lower quartile.

**The median of the data is 56 and the lower quartile is 47**

After arranging the numbers in ascending order, you could easily pick the median, or middle number. That would be 56.

Counting the total number of data point, then dividing by 4 gives you thestart of the lower quartile. 25/4=6 with a remainder. So the lower quartile starts with the sixth number: 46. So 43 does lie in the lower quartile.

the median is 56 and yes 43 would lie in the lower quartile
