In training, a fighter pilot measures the number of seconds he blacks out over a number of flights. He constructs the following box and whisker plot:
As long as the pilot is not unconscious for more than 7 seconds, he will be safe to fly.
The pilot concludes that he is safe to fly all the time. Explain why his conclusion is incorrect.
Construct and interpret box plots and use them to compare data sets.
