2. Measures of Position
(for grouped data)
• First Quartile (Q

)
• Third Quartile (Q
3
)
15 sanizah@tmsk.uitm.edu.my
Formula to obtain Q
1
and Q
3
Step 1: Obtain the cumulative frequencies.
Step 2: Identify the first and third quartile classes.
Location of first quartile 
Location of third quartile 
Then refer to the cumulative frequency column and
determine the locations and classes.

Coefficient of Variation
Indicate the ratio of the standard deviation to the
arithmetic mean expressed as a percent
The larger the percentage, the greater the variation.
Large variation implies less consistency,
small variation implies better consistency.
