  1. Without being able to see your image, here are some guidelines:
    a) Consider how the key pieces of data on one graph compare to those on the other graph (e.g. compare the mins, lower quartiles, medians, upper quartiles, and maxes).
    b) IQR = Q3 - Q1 (ends of the box)
    c) Find the difference between the Q2s of each set. (line in centre of each box)
    d) Use the numbers you found above to work this out.
