NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker.Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where "a" and "b" need to have explicitly stated values.For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not.The following data are the base salaries, in thousands of dollars, of 50 chief executive officers for a sample of companies doing business with the state of Connecticut. That is, the first entry in the table below corresponds to a salary of $125,000. A copy of this data set can be found in the Excel Workbook called CEOSalaries.xls.125157113127201165145119148158148168117105136136125148108178179191225204104205197119209157209205221178247235217222224187265148165228239245152148115150Find the interquartile range of the CEO salaries, in thousands of dollars, rounded to 2 decimal places.
