1. A five-number summary represents the following qualifiers:
minimum
Q1
median
Q3
maximum

the interval minimum/median represents 50% of the data in the lower half.
the interval median/maximum represents 50% of the data in the upper half.
the interval Q1/Q3 represents 50% of the data in the middle half, which better represents the population.

So choose the appropriate interval and post your answer for a check if you wish.
