| x | f | Cumulative frequency |
| 1 | 3 | 3 |
| 2 | 5 | 8 |
| 3 | 9 | 17 |

(i) Lower quartile
(Q1) = The value of $("n"/4)^"th"$ observation
= The value of $(80/4)^"th"$ observation
= The value of 20th observation
Q1 = 4.
(ii) Upper quartile
(Q3) = The value of $((3"n")/4)^"th"$ observation
= The value of $((3 xx 80)/4)^"th"$ observation
= The value of 60th observation
Q3 = 6.
(iii) Inter quartile range
= Q3 - Q1
= 6 - 4
= 2.
(iv) Semi-quartile range
= $(Q_3 - Q_1)/(2)$
= $(2)/(2)$
= 1.
