#20color(white)(x)21color(white)(x)color(magenta)(24)color(white)(x)28color(white)(x)29color(red)(uarr)color(white)(x)35color(white)(x)36color(white)(x)color(magenta)(37)color(white)(x)43color(white)(x)44#

#"the median "color(red)(Q_2)" is in the middle of the data set"#

#"in this case that is between 29 and 35 so find the average"#

#rArrcolor(red)(Q_2)=(29+35)/2=32#

#"the lower and upper quartiles divides the set to the left and "#

#"right of the median into 2 equal parts"#

#rArrcolor(magenta)(Q_1)=24" and " color(magenta)(Q_3)=37#
