Between 16 and 42

#### Explanation:

The box begins with Q1 or the 25th percentile. If you rank the data from low to high, determine **Q1=16** . Q1 is the **midpoint** of the numbers below the median.

The box ends at Q3 or the 75th percentile. **Q3= 42**. Similarly, Q3 is the **midpoint** of the numbers above the median.
