For a) the information is directly given on the graph. Can you state what you got and I'll check.
For b) is this what you were asking about in another post? As it said, remove some of the smaller data. Again, if you want to check answers, just post what you've done.

I don't think you're calculating the Q values, correctly. If you look at the graph, they don't divide up the "y" axis into quarters?

First quartile should be 18 + (100-18)/4 = 3/4*18 + 100/4
Median is correct 18 + (100-18)/2 = 18/2 + 100/2 = (100+18)/2
Third quartile should be 18 + 3(100-18)/4 = 18/4 + 3*100/4

Edit: range is not right nor b), but we'll do those afterwards.

No, the range is defined in terms of the min and max data values (x-axis).
Edit - note the Q values in the previous post refer to the y-axis. You have to map them back to the x-axis, like you have done previously.

Imagine the median was equal to the mean (roughly it is ...).
What would the new curve look like if the median was larger?

shifting to the right would be a better way to describe it.
