Here is a definition of Five-number summary:

(1) the minimum (smallest observation)

(2) the lower quartile or first quartile (which cuts off the lowest 25% of the data)

(3) the median (middle value)

the upper quartile or third quartile (4) (which cuts off the highest 25% of the data)

(5) the maximum (largest observation)

In your case the median is 281 , the minimum is 185 and the maximum is 518. For the two quartiles, take the third and seventh largest numbers of the group.
