Box and Whiskers graphs are a simple, linear way to analyze sets of continuous numerical data. They are especially helpful in determining whether or not there are significant differences between sets of data. A box-and-whiskers shows the distribution of data along a number line. There are four components to a box and whisker plot: two whiskers and two boxes. Each component makes up 25% of the data regardless of how big or how small it is.
