Rewrite the list in ascending order, and then divide the list into four parts. That will tell you the quartile boundaries.
45 54 56 58 58 60 62
64 64 65 65 65 66 67 67
67 67 68 68 69 72 74 74
75 75 82 86 88 90
Q2 = 67 (divides into upper and lower halves)

Q1 = 64 (median of lower half)
Q3 = 74 (median of upper half)
