Solution:
Ungrouped/Raw data
Arrange in ascending order n = 7
No. of apples per box: 18,22,25, [26], 28, 30, 32
Median = Size of $$\left[\frac{\mathrm{N}+1}{10}\right]^{\mathrm{th}}$$ term = $$\frac{7+1}{2}$$ = 4th term
∴ Median = 26 apples per box.

Median = $$\left(\frac{40+1}{2}\right)^{\text {th }}$$ term = 25.5th term.
Here 20.5 lies in the group of 29 of LCF., its value at X is median.
∴ Median 15.

4,1,0,2, 5,2, 5, 2,1,2,1,5, 4,2,1,2
Solution:
Mode = Size of most repeated term
∴ Mode (Z) = 2

Question 3.
Find the value of mode :

Solution:
(Discrete data)
Mode = Size of highest frequency
Highest frequency is 25, its size (X) is 40.
∴ Mode (Z) = 40

Question 4.
Find mode number of children per family

Solution:
Mode = Size of highest frequency.
Let X and f be the number of children and number of families.
Highest frequency is 35, its size (X) is Z.
∴ Mode(Z) = 2 children per family.

Question 5.
Find the mode:

Solution:
(Continuous data)
First find the medal class :
Medal class = Size of highest frequency
Apply the formula:

Let X and f be size and no. of items

Medal clas = 6 – 8 [It has highest frequency]
L = 6 ® Lower limit of medal class
f0 = 1 ® Frequency preceeding to model class
f1 = 15 ® Frequency of the model class
f2 = 10 ® Frequency succeeding to model class
i = 2 Width of the medal clas [i.e., 8 minus 6] = 2

∴ Z = 11.2307 is the modal size of items.

Question 6.

Solution:
Let X and /be the production and number of days.
The frequency distribution is of inclusive class intervals. So convert into exclusive class intervals. Using correction factor (CF)

Subtract CF in all lower limits and add to all upper limits.
Medal class = Size of highest frequency = (29.5 – 34.5)

Question 8.
Find the mode:

Solution:
Convert inclusive class into exclusive class intervals
C.F = $$\frac{\text { LL II class -UL I class }}{2}=\frac{15-4}{2}$$ = 0.5
Subtract CF = 0.5 in all lower limits and add to all upper limits.

 X f (-0.5) – 14.5 4 14.5-29.5 9 ← f0 29.5-44.5 15 ← f1 44.5-59.5 8 ← f2 55.5-74.5 4

Medal class = Size of highest frequency = (29,5 – 44.5)

Z = 29.5+ 6.9230 = 36.423.

Question 9.
Calculate mode :

Solution:
In the above frequency distribution there are two highest frequencies, the data is called Bi-medal. To find mode use empirical relation between mean, median and mode:
Z = 3 median – 2 mean
Z = 3m – 2x̄
$$\overline{\mathrm{x}}=\frac{\Sigma f_{m}}{\mathrm{N}}$$; m- midpoints
After calculating LCF

LCF = Frequencies added from top
$$\overline{\mathrm{X}}=\frac{\sum f_{m}}{\mathrm{M}}=\frac{1955}{65}$$ = 30.0769
Median class = Size of $$\left(\frac{\mathrm{N}}{2}\right)^{\mathrm{th}}$$ term = $$\frac{65}{2}$$ = 32.5th term
Here 32.5 is not in the group of 32 of LCF but in the group of 47.
So, median class = 30-40

Now mode (Z) = 3 m – 2x̄
= 3(30.3333) – 2(30.0769)
= 90.9999 – 60.1538
Z = 30.3333
Note : Calculation of mode for indefined data we can also use grouping and analysis table method, but for IPUC it is limited study.

Question 10.

Solution:
The distribution is of less than cumulative type, i.e., upper limits and frequencies added from top are given. Convert it to simple frequency distribution.
The distribution is ill defined for mode use empirical relation.

Median class = Size of $$\left(\frac{\mathrm{N}}{2}\right)^{\mathrm{th}}$$ term = $$\frac{150}{2}$$ = 75th term
= 10-12

M=11(000’s)
∴Mode(Z) = 3m – 2x̄ = 3(11) – 2(9.8533) = 33 – 19.7066
= 13.2934 (000’s’).

Question 11.

Solution:
The given table is more than cumulative frequency distribution. Convert into simple frequency distribution (i.e., lower limits and frequencies added from below are given)

Median class = Size of $$\left(\frac{\mathrm{N}}{2}\right)^{\mathrm{th}}$$ term = $$\frac{100}{2}$$ = 50th term = (100-110)

M= 104.5454IQ
Median class = Size of highest frequency = 100 – 110

Z = 100 + 3.3333 = 103.3333IQ

Question 12.

 X f fx 5 4 20 6 6 36 7 12 84 8 K 8K 9 8 72 N = 30 + K ΣfX = 212 + 8K

$$\overline{\mathrm{x}}=\frac{\Sigma f \mathrm{x}}{N}$$
7.3 = $$\frac{212+8 K}{30+K}$$
7.3(30 + K) = 212 + 8K
219 + 7.3K = 212 + 8K
-8K + 7.3K = 212 – 219
– 0.7K = -7
K = $$\frac{7}{0.7}$$ = 10
K = lo is the missing frequency

Question 13.
Find the missing frequency if the mean is 18.4

Let k be the missing Frequency

 X f fx 5 3 15 10 7 70 15 K 15K 20 15 300 25 7 175 10 6 180 N = 38 +  K 740 + 15K

$$\overline{\mathrm{x}}=\frac{\Sigma f \mathrm{x}}{N}$$
18.4 = $$\frac{740+15 K}{38+K}$$
18.4(38 + K) = 740 + 15K
18.4 × 38+ 18.4K = 740 + 15K
699.2 + 18.4K = 740 + 15K
18.4K = 740 – 699.2 – 15.K
3.4K = 40.8
K = $$\frac{40.8}{3.4}$$
K = 12 is the missing frequency.

Question 14.

Solution:
Let K be the missing frequency
$$\overline{\mathrm{X}}=\frac{\sum f_{m}}{\mathrm{N}}$$

$$\overline{\mathrm{X}}=\frac{\sum f_{m}}{\mathrm{N}}$$
24 = $$\frac{510+35 K}{24+K}$$
24(24 + K) = 5 10 + 35K
576 + 24K = 5 10 + 35K
24K – 35K = 510 – 576
-11K = -66
K = $$\frac{66}{11}$$ =6
∴ Missing frequency = K = 6

Question 15.
Find the missing frequency if x̄ = 15.587

Solution:
Let K be the missing frequency
$$\overline{\mathrm{X}}=\frac{\sum f_{m}}{\mathrm{N}}$$

$$\overline{\mathrm{X}}=\frac{\sum f_{m}}{\mathrm{N}}$$
15.587 = $$\frac{513+17 K}{34+K}$$
15.587(34 + K) =+ 17K
529.958 + 15.587K = 513 + 17K
15.587K – 17K = 513 – 529.958
-1.413K = -16.958
16.958
K = $$\frac{16.587}{1.413}$$ = 12
∴ Missing frequencyK= 12.

Given that N = 200 and x̄ = 83.875
Let K1 and K2 be the missing frequencies

$$\overline{\mathrm{X}}=\frac{\sum f_{m}}{\mathrm{N}}$$
Given = N = 200

83.875 × 200 = 10962.5 + 62.5K1 + 137.5K2
62.5K1 + 137.5K2 = 16775 – 10962.5
62.5K1 + 137.5K2 = 5812.5 …………..(1)
It is given that M = 200
i.e., 137 + K1 +K2= 200
K1 + K2 = 63…………….(2)
From (1) and (2): (1)-(2) x 62.5

Put K2 = 25 in (1)
K1 + 25 = 63
K1= 63 – 25 =38
∴ K1 = 38, K2 = 25 are the missing frequencies.

Question 17.

Solution:
Let K1 and K2 be the missing frequencies

$$\overline{\mathrm{X}}=\frac{\sum f_{m}}{\mathrm{N}}$$,Given N = 35
4.8286 = $$\frac{82+3 K_{1}+7 K_{2}}{35}$$
169 = 82 + 3K1 + 7K2
3K1 + 7K2 = 87 ……….. (1)
And given : N = 35
i. e, 18 + K1 + K2 = 35
K1 + K2 = 17
From equations (1) and (2)

Put K2 = 13 in(l) : K1 + 9 = 17
K1 = 8
∴ K1 = 8, K2 = 9 are missing frequencies.

 Cl f LCF 0 – 5 3 3 5 – 10 5 8 10-15 – 8+K 20-25 12 20+K 25-30 5 25+K N = 25+K + K

Since M= 14.75
∴ Median class =10 – 15

2 × 4.75K = (9 + K)J
9.5K = 45 + 5K
9.5K- 5K= 45
4.5K = 45
∴ K=10

Question 19.
Calculate the missing frequency if median M = 10.3

Solution:
Let K be the missing frequency

Since median M = 10.3
∴ Median class = 9 – 12

19.0667 x 2 = 68 – K
K = 68 – 38.1334
∴ K = 29.8664 ≅ 30
