(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I have two sets of data, each with 30 distances and 30 results, I have the mean, median, mode, range etc, I have drawn histograms and cumulative frequency curves, got the IRQ for both sets of data.

Now I need to compare the data using standard deviations and also find the 10th and 90th percentiles, could you explain the EASIEST way to do this without having to write a lot more things down, is there a formula or equation to get both these things.

Also how would I superimpose smooth curves to represent data distributions on the histograms and mark on the means, what data would I use and how would I identify skewness if any.

I just want descriptions on the easiest way to achieve this, I have not provided any numbers/data as i don't want you to do my work for me, rather just to give me the method in which I can do it myself.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
