Solution

The given data can be arranged in ascending order as follows:
10, 13, 18, 25, 27, 28, 31.
Here, n = 7

∴ Q1 = value of `(("n" + 1)/4)^"th"` observation

= value of `((7 + 1)/4)^"th"` observation

= value of 2nd observation
∴ Q1 = 13

Q2 = value of `2(("n" + 1)/4)^"th"` observation

= value of `2((7 + 1)/4)^"th"` observation

= value of (2 × 2)th observation
= value of 4th observation
∴ Q2 = 25

Q3 = value of `3(("n" + 1)/4)^"th"` observation

= value of `3((7 + 1)/4)^"th"` observation

= value of (3 × 2)th observation
= value of 6th observation
∴ Q3 = 28
Coefficient of skewness,

Sk = `("Q"_3 + "Q"_1 - 2"Q"_2)/("Q"_3 - "Q"_1)`

= `(28 + 13 - 2(25))/(28 - 13)`

= `(41 - 50)/15`

= `- 9/15`

∴ Sk = – 0.6
