A boxandwhisker plot shows a fivepoint summary of the lowest score, lower quartile, median, upper quartile and highest score.First, find the highest and the lowest score.`\text(Highest Score)` `=` `12` `\text(Lowest Score)` `=` `2` Create a number line with with ascending values from the lowest to highest scoresNext, arrange the values of the data set in ascending order`2` `4` `5` `6` `6` `7` `9` `11` `12` We can see that the values `6` is the middle values of the data set.Therefore, the median of the data set is `6``\text(Median)` `=` `6` The median divides the data set into two quartiles, each with `4` values.`2` `4` `5` `6` `=` `\text(Lower Half)` `7` `9` `11` `12` `=` `\text(Greater Half)` Now, find the median of both quartiles to get the lower and upper quartiles`2` `4` `5` `6` `7` `9` `11` `12` `\text(Lower Quartile)` `=` `(4+5)/2` `=` `4.5` `\text(Upper Quartile)` `=` `(9+11)/2` `=` `10` Now, mark the number line with dots for the lowest and highest scores of the data set.Next, mark the lower and upper quartile with a line, and connect them to form a box.Finally, mark the median with a line inside the box.Also connect the dots to the box to make the whiskers.

Incorrect
The median is the middle score in a data set.A boxandwhisker plot shows a fivepoint summary of the lowest score, lower quartile, median, upper quartile and highest score.The median is indicated by the line inside the box and whisker plotThe line inside the box points to the score `color(tomato)(4.5)` on the number line.Therefore, the median of the box and whisker plot is `4.5`.`\text(Median)=4.5`
