A woman who won best actress is older than all of the men who won best actor.

Work Step by Step

In order to create a box and whisker plot, we use a box and a whisker plot maker online. (To draw one by hand, we draw a line, making the far left point the minimum and the far right point the maximum. Then, we draw a box, where the left side of the box is $Q_1$ and the right side of the box is $Q_3$. Finally we draw a vertical line through the box: this is will be the median.) However, with a modified box and whisker plot, the outliers are graphed on the line separately instead of being included in the data set. Hence when the outliers are graphed, we can see that there is actually a woman that is older than all of the men who won best actor.
