How do I display quartiles and median in a chart?

Hello,

I want to make a chart displaying the quartiles and median in a series
of data. I am using the =quartile() formula to determine the quartiles
but cannot find a way to display everything in a chart (i want to drop
vertical lines in the position of the quartiles and display the data
of the quartile).

Can any one help?

Answer: How do I display quartiles and median in a chart?

To display quartiles and median in a chart, you can follow these steps:
1. First, calculate the quartiles and median using the
Formula:
``` =quartile()  ```
and
Formula:
``` =median()  ```
formulas in separate cells. For example, if your data is in cells A1:A10, you can calculate the quartiles and median in cells B1:B4 using the following formulas:

- Quartile 1:
Formula:
``` =quartile(A1:A10,1)  ```
- Quartile 2 (median):
Formula:
``` =median(A1:A10)  ```
- Quartile 3:
Formula:
``` =quartile(A1:A10,3)  ```
- Maximum:
Formula:
``` =max(A1:A10)  ```
- Minimum:
Formula:
``` =min(A1:A10)  ```
2. Next, create a column chart with your data. Select the data range (including the quartiles and median) and go to the Insert tab in the ribbon. Click on the Column chart icon and select the type of column chart you want to use.
3. Right-click on the chart and select "Select Data". In the "Select Data Source" dialog box, click on the "Add" button to add a new series.
4. In the "Edit Series" dialog box, enter a name for the series (e.g. "Quartiles") and select the quartile values as the series values. Click OK to close the dialog box.
5. Right-click on the new series in the chart and select "Change Series Chart Type". In the "Change Chart Type" dialog box, select the "Line" chart type and click OK.
6. Format the new series to your liking. You can change the line color, style, and width, as well as add data labels to display the quartile values.
7. Repeat steps 3-6 for the median value.
8. Finally, add vertical lines to the chart to indicate the quartile positions. To do this, go to the Insert tab in the ribbon and click on the "Shapes" button. Select the "Line" shape and draw a vertical line at each quartile position. You can format the lines to your liking by changing the color, style, and width.

That's it! You should now have a chart displaying the quartiles and median with vertical lines indicating the quartile positions. Let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance.
