quart

computation of quartiles

Calling Sequence

```s=quart(x)
s=quart(x,'r') or m=quart(x,1)
s=quart(x,'c') or m=quart(x,2)```

Arguments

x

real or complex vector or matrix

Description

For a vector or a matrix x, [q]=quart(x,y) returns in the vector q the quartiles of x. [q]=quart(x,'r') (or, equivalently, [q]=quart(x,1)) are the rowwise percentiles. It returns in each column of the matrix q the quartiles of data in the corresponding column of x.

[q]=quart(x,'c') (or, equivalently, [q]=quart(x,2)) are the columnwise quartiles. It returns in each row of the matrix q the quartiles of data in the corresponding row of x.

Examples

```x=[6 7 0 7 10 4 2 2 7 1;
6 0 5 5 5 2 0 6 8 10;
8 6 4 3 5 9 8 3 4 7;
1 3 2 7 6 1 1 4 8 2;
6 3 5 1 6 5 9 9 5 5;
1 6 4 4 5 4 0 8 1 8;
7 1 3 7 8 0 2 8 10 8;
3 6 1 9 8 5 5 3 2 1;
5 7 6 2 10 8 7 4 0 8;
10 3 3 4 8 6 9 4 8 3]
q=quart(x)
q=quart(x,'r')
q=quart(x,'c')```
