Given five data points (minimum, 25th percentile, 50th percentile, 75th percentile, maximum), do I have enough information to be able to construct what a normal (Gaussian) distribution would look like?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have no data on any other statistical information (population size, mean, median, mode, standard deviation, etc...) nor do I have any means of collecting or obtaining that data.

If it isn't possible, that's okay. Just thought that I would ask.

Thank you in advance for all your help.
