### What is the 5 number summary in stats?

A summary consists of five values: the most extreme values in the data set (the maximum and minimum values), the lower and upper quartiles, and the median. These values are presented together and ordered from lowest to highest: minimum value, lower quartile (Q1), median value (Q2), upper quartile (Q3), maximum value.

### How do I create a two way table summary in Minitab?

Summarized data in a two-way table

#### How do I summarize raw data?

The three common ways of looking at the center are average (also called mean), mode and median. All three summarize a distribution of the data by describing the typical value of a variable (average), the most frequently repeated number (mode), or the number in the middle of all the other numbers in a data set (median).

#### What is the difference between raw and summarized data?

The summary could be the sum of the observations, the number of occurrences, their mean value, and so on. When the summary is the number of occurrences, this is known as frequency data. This is in contrast to raw data, where each row in the worksheet represents an individual observation.

**What is a 5 number summary with an example?**

The median of the first group is the lower or first quartile, and is equal to (0 + 1)/2 = 0.5. The median of the second group is the upper or third quartile, and is equal to (27 + 61)/2 = 44. The smallest and largest observations are 0 and 63. So the five-number summary would be 0, 0.5, 7.5, 44, 63.

## Which of the following is included in a 5 number summary?

## How do you find Q2 and Q4?

There are four different formulas to find quartiles:

- Formula for Lower quartile (Q1) = N + 1 multiplied by (1) divided by (4)
- Formula for Middle quartile (Q2) = N + 1 multiplied by (2) divided by (4)
- Formula for Upper quartile (Q3) = N + 1 multiplied by (3) divided by (4)
