    Interpretation of information please

    I have the following information;

    Two columns of integers, one is labled estimated numbers, the second column actual numbers.

    I have been given the following sub headings;

    Minimum
    Median
    Maximum
    Mean
    Standard deviation
    Inter quartile range
    Range

    I am asked for two measures of location, the only two that stand out are;

    Inter quartile range and Range.

    Am I right with these or am I way off line.

    Thanks for any help

    David

    You have identified two measures of spread. a measure of location is a single number that is supposed to represent the entire group.
