Question 18.

What is the median of the data?

Answer:

10

Explanation:

The median of the data is 10.

Question 19.

What is the range of the data?

Answer:

18

Explanation:

The difference between the smallest and highest numbers in the given data that is 20 – 2 = 18.

Question 20.

What is the interquartile range?

Answer:

20

Explanation:

The difference between the upper and lower medians is called interquartile range.

0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20

First, we will find the median of a set with an even number of values.

Find the median of the lower portion.

The median of the lower portion is Zero and the median of the upper portion is 20. Now we need to calculate the difference of the upper and lower medians by subtracting the lower median from the upper median.

Therefore the interquartile range is 20 – 0 = 20.

Question 21.

Looking at the shape of the data distribution, which measure of variability would best represent the data?

Answer:
