Calculation:
The first quartile ${Q}_{1}$, is the value such that 25% of the observations are smaller and 75% are larger.
The second quartile ${Q}_{2}$ is the value such that 50% of the observations are smaller and 50% are larger which is also called as the median.
The third quartile ${Q}_{3}$, is the value such that 75% of the observations are smaller and 25% are larger.
The interquartile range is given below:
$IQR={Q}_{3}-{Q}_{1}$
$=297.5-285.2=12.3$
Thus, middle 50% of the distribution with distance of the balls lies between the distance of 285.2 yards and 279.5 yards and that interquartile range as 12.3 yards.
