    What is the Median of a Data in a Box Plot?

    The data point indicated by the vertical line that divides the rectangular box in the box plot represents the median of a data.

    The median can be used to represent the typical value of a data distribution.

    In the box plot attached below:

    • Median for morning snack = 275
    • Median for afternoon snack = 400

    The difference is 400 - 275 = 225.

    This means that the typical afternoon snack (median) had about 225 calories more than the typical morning snack (option C).
