Find the 5 number summary of $1$, $-5$, $2$, $4$, $-3$, $6$, $7$, $0$, $2$, $5$, $-4$, $7$.

### Solution

The first step is to sort the values.

The sorted values are $-5$, $-4$, $-3$, $0$, $1$, $2$, $2$, $4$, $5$, $6$, $7$, $7$.

Now we immediately see that the minimum value is $-5$ and the maximum value is $7$.

The first quartile $Q_{1}$ is $- \frac{3}{2}$ (for steps, see lower quartile calculator).

The median (second quartile) is $2$ (for steps, see median calculator).

The third quartile $Q_{3}$ is $\frac{11}{2}$ (for steps, see upper quartile calculator).

Minimum: $-5$A.
Lower (first) quartile: $- \frac{3}{2} = -1.5$A.
Median (second quartile): $2$A.
Upper (third) quartile): $\frac{11}{2} = 5.5$A.
Maximum: $7$A.
