Question

(08.05 MC) The box plot below shows the number of years that 12 schools have participated in an interschool swimming meet: A box and whisker plot is drawn using a number line from 0 to 10 with primary markings and labels at 0, 5, 10. In between two primary markings are 4 secondary markings. The box extends from 1 to 6 on the number line. There is a vertical line at 3.5. The whiskers end at 0 and 8. Above the plot is written Duration of Participation. Below the plot is written Years. At least how many schools have participated for more than 1 year and less than 3.5 years? (1 point) 3 6 10 11

20% of the total schools participated for 6 years or more. This is because the part of the box plot wherein it hits 6 years and above is 20%. Thus, if there are 20 schools, then 20% of it would be 4. In conclusion, there are 4 schools that participated for 6 years or more.
