## What is interquartile range IQR

Interquartile range is the difference between Q1 and Q3. It can be calculated as Q3 - Q1. The IQR is always positive because Q3 is always greater than or equal to Q1.

## What Does the IQR tell you

A large interquartile range means that the middle of the distribution of your numbers is quite spread out. if you plot the data as a histogram the middle Peaks would not be very high and instead would be kind of flat.

A small interquartile range means that the middle part of your data is congested. If you plotted your data as a histogram the middle bins would be very high.

## How Do You Calculate Q1, Q2 and Q3

### Order your data from lowest number to highest

### Find the number that is bigger than 25% of all other numbers. This is Q1.

### Find the number that is bigger than 50% of all numbers. This is Q2, aka the median.

### Find the number that is bigger than 75% of all numbers. This is Q3.
