First of all arranging the data from least to greatest

186,189,191,198,203,208,211,213,220,225,228,235,237,242,244,249,252,254,257,259

Now for the 25 th percentile multiply the total data with the .25=.25*20=5,so it is the average of 5 th and 6 th data =205.5mg/dl

For the 80th percentile multiply the number 20 with .8=20*.8=16 th average of 16 and 17 th data =249+252/2 =250.5 mg/dl

I hope it helps.
