Here's the Solution to this Question

Quartiles:

Firstly find quartile position;

Q_1=\frac{1}{4}\times100=25th-position

Q_2=\frac{1}{2}\times100=50th-position

Q_3=\frac{3}{4}\times100=75th-position


Quartile=L+\frac{(Q-P)}{F}\times C


Q_1=30+\frac{(25-20)}{12}\times 10=34.2


Q_2=40+\frac{(50-32)}{28}\times 10=46.4


Q_3=50+\frac{(75-60)}{22}\times 10=56.8


Deciles:

D_3=l+\frac{w}{f}(\frac{4N}{10}-C)=30.5+\frac{10}{32}(\frac{3\times100}{10}-20)=33.6


D_7=l+\frac{w}{f}(\frac{4N}{10}-C)=50.5+\frac{10}{82}(\frac{7\times100}{10}-60)=51.7


Percentiles:

P_k=L_k+\frac{\frac{nk}{100}-F_k}{f_k}\times C_w


P10 =10.5+\frac{\frac{100\times10}{100}-8}{15}\times 10=11.8


P23 =30.5+\frac{\frac{100\times23}{100}-20}{32}\times 10=31.4


P92 =70.5+\frac{\frac{100\times92}{100}-90}{100}\times 10=70.7


Quartile Range:

QR=Q_3-Q_1=56.8-34.2=22.6


Quartile Deviation:

QD=\frac{Q_3-Q_1}{2}=\frac{56.8-32.2}{2}=11.3
