Katelyn sorted the data and made the following histogram: 

A histogram x axis, labeled, Cups of coffee sold, scaled in equal segments of 10, from 0 to 80, y axis, labeled Frequency, starting at the left each segment has the following bar heights: 5, 9, 13, 10, 7, 5, 0, 1.

  1.  Using the sorted data from the table and the histogram, find the five number summary (minimum, first quartile, median, third quartile, maximum) without using your calculator.

    For quartiles:
    Look between the and the .
    Look between the s.
    Look between the and the .

    Does the distribution have skew? Is there an outlier?
    What is the IQR? What would it represent?
