Variability
Topic Review on "Title": 
Key Formulas
 IQR = Q3 – Q1
 s2 = (1 / (n1)) ∑(xi– x)2
 s = √s2
Variables Used
 Q1= 1st quartile
 Q3 = 3rd quartile
 M = Median
 s2 = variance
 s = standard deviation
Q1 and Q3
 To find 1st and 3rd quartiles:
 Order the data, find n and median.
 Divide the data in half.
 Find the position of the middle value of each half.
 Determine the value represented by each middle position.
Five Number Summary
 To find the five number summary:
 Order the data, find n and median.
 Find the 1st and 3rd quartiles.
 Order the five number summary according the symbols: Minimum Q1 M Q3 Maximum
Standard Deviation
 When calculating the standard deviation, use a table to keep data separated and ordered.
 First, find the mean of the data set.
 Second, find the deviation from the mean of each observation.
 Third, square the deviations.
 Fourth, take the sum of the deviation squares.
 Fifth, find the variance.
 Sixth, take square root of variance to get standard deviation.

"Title" Tutorial Summary : 
This tutorial describes what variability is and its properties. We will show you how to use specific measures of spread to interpret distributions, calculate and interpret quartiles, make a five number summary of data, construct a box plot of five number summary and calculate the standard deviation of a distribution.
After we use the five number summary to make a box plot we will then know how to identify outliers that will greatly affect the variability of the distribution.
