**S1 Measures of Dispersion**Objectives: To be able to find the median and quartiles for discrete data To be able to find the median and quartiles for continuous data using interpolation**Can you work out the rule for finding median and quartiles**from discrete data? • LQ Median UQ • 1 2 3 4 5 1.5 3 4.5 • 1 2 3 4 5 6 • 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 • 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 • 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 • Can you spot any rules for n amount of numbers in a list?**LQ n/4 If n/4 is a whole number find the mid point of**corresponding term and the term aboveIf n is not a whole number, round the number up and find the corresponding term UQ 3n/4 If 3n/4 is a whole number find the mid point of corresponding term and the term aboveIf n is not a whole number, round the number up and find the corresponding term**Median n/2 If n/2 is a whole number find the midpoint of**the corresponding term and the term above If n/2 is not a whole number, round up and find the corresponding term**Calculate the mean, median and inter quartile range from a**table of discrete data Mean = Σfx Σf**Calculate the mean, median and inter quartile range from a**table of discrete data Median = n/2 Cumulative frequency Median = 95/2 = 47.5 = 48th value 3 20 49 83 95 Median = 37 CDs LQ = 95/4 = 23.75 LQ = 24th value LQ (Q1) = 37 CDs UQ (Q3) = 95/4 x 3 = 71.25 UQ = 72nd value UQ (Q3) = 38 CDs IQR = Q3-Q1 = 38-37=1**Calculate the mean, median and inter quartile range from a**table of continuous data Median = n/2 We do not need to do any rounding because we are dealing with continuous data Cumulative frequency 2 27 57 70 Median = 70/2 = 35th value This lies in the 34-36 class but we don’t know the exact value of the term**Using interpolation to find an estimate for the median**33.5mm m 36.5mm 35 27 57 m – 33.5 = 8 3 30 m – 33.5 = 35 - 27 36.5 – 33.5 = 57 - 27 m – 33.5 = 0.26 x 3 m = 33.5 + 0.8 = 34.3**Using interpolation to find an estimate for the lower**quartile LQ = 70/4 = 17.5 (in the 32-33 group) 31.5mm Q1 33.5mm 17.5 2 27 Q1 – 31.5 = 15.5 2 25 Q1 – 31.5 = 17.5 - 2 33.5 – 31.5 = 27 - 2 Q1 – 31.5 = 0.62 x 2 Q1 = 31.5 + 1.24 = 32.74**Using interpolation to find an estimate for the upper**quartile UQ = 70/4x3 = 52.5 (in the 34-36 group) 33.5mm Q3 36.5mm 52.5 27 57 Q3 – 33.5 = 25.5 3 30 Q3 – 33.5 = 52.5 - 27 36.5 – 33.5 = 57 - 27 Q3 – 33.5 = 0.85 x 3 Q1 = 33.5 + 2.55 = 36.05**Median = LB + ½n – fB x w**fU - fB LQ = LB + ¼n – fB x w fU - fB UQ = LB + ¾n – fB x w fU - fB Summary of rules n = total frequency w = class width fB = cumulative frequency below median/lq/uq fU = cumulative frequency above median/lq/uq**Q1=74.5 + 500-250 x 5**738-250 Q1=77.06 Q2=79.5+1000-738 x 5 1370-738 Q2=81.57 Q3=84.5+1500-1370 x 5 1840-1370 Q3=85.88 The lengths of a batch of 2000 rods were measured to the nearest cm.
