Hey there! I'm a Passionate, Experienced and Friendly Maths Tutor

The upper quartile is the median (middle) of the upper half of a data set. This is located by dividing the data set with the median and then dividing the upper half that remains with the median again, this median of the upper half is the upper quartile.
