Given:
PhysicsChemistryTotalMales10068168Females7161132Total171129300
We note that 132 of the 300 seniors in the table are female.
The probability is the number of favorable outcomes divided by the number of possible outcomes:
P(Female)=# of favorable outcomes# of possible outcomes=132300
We note that 168 of the 300 seniors in the table are female and are enrolled in physics. P(Female and physics)=# of favorable outcomes# of possible outcomes=71300
Let us use the definition Conditional probability: P(B|A)=P(AB)P(A)=P(A and B)P(A)
P(physics|Female)=P(Female and physics)P(Female)
=71300132300
=71132
0.5379
=53.79%
Result : 71132=≈0.5379=53.79%

Ambiguity between methods of calculating quartiles. Which method is more correct?
I am having confusion between two methods of calculating the first quartiles.
Let me explain by an example:
A = [ 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 ]
The method that I know:
To find the first quartile in the list above I first find the median = 3 that is the 3rd element.
Now I split the list in the following fashion:
( 1 , 2 )
3
( 4 , 5 )
Now we take the list ( 1 , 2 ) and we find the media between them that is ( 1 + 2 ) / 2 = 1.5
So according to my calculation the first quartile Q 1 = 1.5
The nearest rank method
n = P 100 × N
So for the above list the 0.25 percentile or the first quartile Q 1 will be
25 100 × 5 = 2
which is 2nd position.
So which is correct 1.5 or 2 ? Or does chosing any of them is fine ?
If I am correct in my original calculation why am I getting a difference between the 2 methods.

The Porsche Club of America sponsors driver education events that provide high-performance driving instruction on actual racetracks. Because safety is a primary consideration at such events, many owners elect to install roll bars in their cars. Deegan Industries manufactures two types of roll bars for Porsches. Model DRB is bolted to the car using existing holes in the car's frame. Model DRW is a heavier roll bar that must be welded to the car's frame. Model DRB requires 20 pounds of a special high alloy steel, 40 minutes of manufacturing time, and 60 minutes of assembly time. Model DRW requires 25 pounds of the special high alloy steel, 100 minutes of manufacturing time, and 40 minutes of assembly time. Deegan's steel supplier indicated that at most 40,000 pounds of the high-alloy steel will be available next quarter. In addition, Deegan estimates that 2000 hours of manufacturing time and 1600 hours of assembly time will be available next quarter. The pro?t contributions are $200 per unit for model DRB and $280 per unit for model DRW. The linear programming model for this problem is as follows:
Max 200DRB + 280DRW
s.t.
20DRB + 25DRW 40,000 Steel Available
40DRB + 100DRW ? 120,000 Manufacturing minutes
60DRB + 40DRW ? 96,000 Assembly minutes
DRB, DRW ? 0
