## What is PLT style use?

The style package adds support for easy-to-switch plotting “styles” with the same parameters as a matplotlib rc file (which is read at startup to configure Matplotlib). There are a number of pre-defined styles provided by Matplotlib.

**What is RC in Matplotlib?**

matplotlib.pyplot. rc (group, **kwargs)[source] Set the current rcParams . group is the grouping for the rc, e.g., for lines.linewidth the group is lines , for axes.facecolor , the group is axes , and so on.

**Which of the following functions is used to locate the Matplotlib config directory?**

By default mpl_configdir should be ~/. config/matplotlib , but you can check where yours is with matplotlib. get_configdir() ; you may need to create this directory.

### Where is Matplotlibrc?

Tell current matplotlibrc location Linux: ~/. config/matplotlib/matplotlibrc. MacOS / Windows: ~/. matplotlib/matplotlibrc.

**What does the Pyplot method subplots return?**

The matplotlib. pyplot. subplots method provides a way to plot multiple plots on a single figure. Given the number of rows and columns , it returns a tuple ( fig , ax ), giving a single figure fig with an array of axes ax .

**What does the function Boxplot return?**

boxplot() function. A box plot is a method for graphically depicting groups of numerical data through their quartiles. The box extends from the Q1 to Q3 quartile values of the data, with a line at the median (Q2). The whiskers extend from the edges of box to show the range of the data.

#### What is a Boxplot used for?

A box and whisker plot is a way of summarizing a set of data measured on an interval scale. It is often used in explanatory data analysis. This type of graph is used to show the shape of the distribution, its central value, and its variability.

**What does a Boxplot show?**

A box plot (also known as box and whisker plot) is a type of chart often used in explanatory data analysis to visually show the distribution of numerical data and skewness through displaying the data quartiles (or percentiles) and averages.

**How do you interpret a Boxplot?**

DefinitionsMedian. The median (middle quartile) marks the mid-point of the data and is shown by the line that divides the box into two parts. Inter-quartile range. The middle “box” represents the middle 50% of scores for the group. Upper quartile. Lower quartile. Whiskers.

## What does it mean if a box plot is positively skewed?

Positively Skewed : For a distribution that is positively skewed, the box plot will show the median closer to the lower or bottom quartile. A distribution is considered “Positively Skewed” when mean > median. It means the data constitute higher frequency of high valued scores.

**What is a box and whisker diagram?**

A box and whisker plot—also called a box plot—displays the five-number summary of a set of data. The five-number summary is the minimum, first quartile, median, third quartile, and maximum. In a box plot, we draw a box from the first quartile to the third quartile. A vertical line goes through the box at the median.

### Why is 1.5 IQR rule?

Paul Velleman, a statistician at Cornell University, was a student of John Tukey, who invented the boxplot and the 1.5*IQR Rule. ‘, Tukey answered, ‘Because 1 is too small and 2 is too large. ‘ It has been shown that this is a reasonable rule for determining if a point is an outlier, for a variety of distributions.

**What if the IQR is zero?**

Having an IQR of 0 means there is no variability in the middle 50% of your data, but the center of the distribution can be anywhere. So, something outside the middle 50% of your data can affect the mean and not the IQR.
