Statistics

During math, we are learning about box and whisker plots. And our task was to make our own box and whisker pots by looking at temperatures for different countries. So then, I chose the average high of Yokohama, Japan’s temperature(in fahrenheit) of the three months december, may, and january.

By looking at the result, I can see that the temperature for december and january is very different. I can also see that the lower quartile for january is close to the lower extreme because the statistics show me that the lower quartile is 48.8 and the minimum is 48.7.

I also looked at the temperature for San Paolo, Brazil(same month as Yokohama). The third one(january) looks similar to the first one in Yokohama Japan. For december, you can see that the temperature didn’t really change in San Paolo.
