Explanation of Solution

Calculation:

The given information is that the data represent the finish times (in minutes) for both men and women. There are 22 men and 31 women who entered the 19–24 age class.

The first place runner in the men’s group finished in 65.30 minutes, and the first place runner in the women’s group finished in 109.03 minutes.

By taking the difference between them, the following is obtained:

109.0365

To determine

Find the median time for men and women runners and to compare men and women runners based on their median times.

c.

To determine

Find the five-number summary for both men and women.

d.

To determine

Check whether there are any outliers in either group.

e.

To determine

Draw the boxplots for the two groups. Explain whether men or women have the most variation in finish times.
