• Maximum (Max): The largest value in the dataset. It represents the highest data point in the dataset.

• Median (Q2): The median, also known as the second quartile or 50th percentile, is the middle value of the dataset when it is sorted in ascending order. It divides the dataset into two equal halves, with 50% of the data falling below it and 50% above it.
