## Comment on

Find the Mean in the Boxplot## I got different answer.

_ _|(q1=2)_ _|(q2=5)_ _|(q3=6)_ _

possible data around q2 => 5 & 5, 4 & 6, 3 & 7, 2 & 3.

possible data around q1 => 2 & 2

possible data around q3 => 6 & 6, 5 & 7

in q2 => 3 & 7 and 2 & 3 are not possible since q1 = 2.

1 2 2 5 5 5 7 10

i got mean as 4.6, where is the mistake?, please help.

## You have {1 2 2 5 5 5 7 10}

You have {1 2 2 5 5 5 7 10}

However, the greatest value is shown on the boxplot as 9 (not 10, as you have)

## I thought it was supposed to

## I didn't read the question

## can we do it like this that

## That approach will work IF we

That approach will work IF we're told the numbers are equally (aka evenly) spaced. However, for this question, we aren't told that the numbers are equally spaced. In fact, the mean here is 4.5, while the median is 5.
