SITE-A teams: Lesson 22

An experiment was performed which measured the number of hours a certain brand of battery allowed a toy rabbit to operate. Twenty-four randomly selected batteries of that particular brand were tested. Below are the number of hours each battery lasted.

Hours 34 37 29 31 32 33 31 29 28 35 36 30 36 30 29 34 22 33 35 32 30 32 34 28

Use the CASIO fx7400G to draw a boxplot for these data and give the five-number summary (Min, Q1, Median, Q3, Max) of the hours.

Turn on the CASIO fx7400G.

Use your cursor arrows to highlight the STAT menu and press or just press when at the main menu screen.
