Q1 = 32.5

Q3 = 50

D2 = 29

D8 = 52

67th percentile = 46.5

Step-by-step explanation:

Given the ordered data:

13, 13, 13, 20, 26, 29, 32, 33, 34, 34, 35, 35, 36, 37, 38, 41, 41, 41, 45, 46, 47, 47, 48, 52, 54, 55, 56, 62, 67, 82

The first quartile :

Q1 = 1/4(n+1)th term

n = sample size = 30

Q1 = 1/4(31) = 7.75 = (7th + 8th) / 2 = (32+33) / 2 = 32.5

Q3 = 3/4(n+1)th term

n = sample size = 30

Q3 = 3/4(31) = 23.25 = (23rd + 24th) / 2 = (48+52) / 2 = 50

D2 = 2nd decile

2 * 10% = 20%

20% * n

0.2 * 30 = 6th = 29

D8 = 8th decile

8 * 10% = 80%

80% * 30 = 24th = 52

67th percentile :

0.67 * 30 = 20.1 th

(20th + 21th) / 2

(46 + 47) / 2

= 46.5
