In a large urban public school district, a random sample of the percent of students in Algebra who pass are given below:

Percent 80 78 82 83 78 80 75 79 82 89 81 79 80 79 81 82 76 73 80 79 81 78 80 77

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.
