# boxplot : computed values combined with raw data

Given computed values for a box plot (min, lq, median, uq, max) and original raw data size is it possible to merge that with raw data.

given:

box1 = [min:1,lq:2,median:5,uq:8,max:10]
size1 = 50 #size of dataset that gave me the box1 calculated values
data2 = [1,1,6,...]


How can I combine both into a new box plot. Is this possible, or do I need the original raw data and have to merge it with the new raw data before calculating the box plot values.

• So you want a plot that shows a boxplot plus the original raw data at the same time? In what package? (In R, I've come to really like the beanplot package, using jitter to display the raw data. – Wayne Jun 6 '12 at 19:41
