You're very welcome, Destiny. Also, keep in mind Byron S.'s comment and everything Dal J. wrote,  and don't forget to look on the websites suggested by Dal J. I went on them and there is a lot of information that you can get from them, especially the Box Plot website which gives you diagrams and explanations.

Good. You'll notice that quartiles involve the median. Good luck !

Ok I think what I have so far might be somewhat right. I don't know how to find the first quartile or the third, but I did the mean and min for each one. women min=22 mean=34.5, boys min=25 mean=232.83 and then for both i got min=22 mean=38.4.

For the box plot, you should be calculating the median age, not the mean.
