Find out Q1 and Q3 using unemployment rates as numerical data:

 Year Unemployment Rate % 2009 3.75 2010 3.54 2011 3.53 2012 3.62 2013 3.46 2014 3.41 2015 3.49 2016 3.51 2017 3.52

#### Solution

 Year Unemployment Rate % 2014 3.41 2013 3.46 2015 3.49 2016 3.51 2017 3.52 2011 3.53 2010 3.54 2012 3.62 2009 3.75 N = 09

Q1 = Size of 1((n+1)/4)^"th observation"

Q1 = Size of 1((9+1)/4)^"th observation"

Q1 = Size of 1((10)/4)^"th observation"

Q1 = Size of 1 (2.5)th observation

Q1 = Size of 2.5th observation

Q1 = Size of 2nd observation + 0.5( 3rd observation - 2nd observation)

Q1 = 3.46 + 0.5 (3.49 - 3.46)

Q1 = 3.46 + 0.5 (0.03)

Q1 = 3.46 + 0.015

Q1 = 3.475

Q= Size of 3((n+1)/4)^"th observation"

Q3 = Size of 3((9+1)/4)^"th observation"

Q3 = Size of 3((10)/4)^"th observation"

Q3 = Size of 3 (2.5)th observation

Q3 = Size of 7.5th observation

Q3= Size of 7th observation + 0.5( 8th observation - 7th observation)

Q3 = 3.54 + 0.5(3.62 - 3.54)

Q3 = 3.54 + 0.5(0.08)

Q3 = 3.54 + 0.4

Q3 = 3.58

Q1 = 3.475, Q3 = 3.58
