The final piece of a boxplot is the representation of outliers. An outlier is a point in the dataset that falls outside of the whiskers. Outliers are usually represented with a dot or an asterisk.

### Instructions

**1.**

We’ve given you a small dataset. Let’s find the outliers in it! We’ve calculated the ends of the whiskers for you. Run the code to see where the whiskers extend to.

**2.**

Look at the values in the array and find the outliers. Create a variable for each outlier and set it equal to the value of the outlier.

For example, if there are three outliers and their values are `5`

, `6`

, and `7`

, then you should create three variables named `outlier_one`

, `outlier_two`

and `outlier_three`

and set each variable equal to `5`

, `6`

, or `7`

.
