To calculate the Q1 (25th percentile) take n times .25 and that value is the data value that is Q1. If n(.25) does not come out even, round up to the next integer. Remember the data values must be sorted in order from lowest to highest for this. Q3 is found by taking n(.75) and round up if necessary and that is the value in order of Q3, IQR is interquartile range and is Q3-Q1. We use that to find out if there are any outliers. Any data value less than Q1 - 1.5(IQR) or greater than Q3 + 1.5(IQR) is an outlie
