Primarily the low quartile, upper quartile, median and interquartile range.


The box is drawn from data given. The box only shows the inter-quartile range, whilst the lines extending (whiskers) shows the complete range i.e; smallest value and largest value.
The box is drawn above just an x-axis scale that is labelled.

Convenient way of graphically depicting groups of numerical data through their quartiles


Mainly we get an idea about the measure of central tendency and measure of dispersion of data cloud.
