Question 2.

Prepare a frequency distribution table for the scores given.

42, 22, 55, 18, 50, 10, 33, 29, 17,

29, 29, 27, 34, 15, 40, 42, 40, 41,

35, 27, 44, 31, 38, 19, 54, 55, 38,

19, 20, 30, 42, 59, 15, 19; 27, 23,

40, 32, 28, 51

Take the class intervals as 10 – 20, 20 – 30, 30 – 40, 40 – 50, 50 – 60. From the frequency distribution table answer the following questions.

(i) What does the frequency, corresponding to the class interval 20 – 30 indicate?

(ii) In which class intervals are the scores 10, 20 and 30 included?

(iii) Find the range of the scores.

Solution:

(i) The largest number of scores lie in the class interval 20 – 30

(ii) 10 is included in 10 – 20, 20 is included in 20 – 30 and 30 is in – eluded in 30 – 40.

(iii) The range = 59 – 10 = 49

Question 3.

The following are the marks scored in a unit test (out of 25). Prepare a frequency distribution table, taking the class intervals as 0 – 4, 5 – 9, 10 – 14, 15 – 19, 20 – 24.

21, 14, 3, 7, 23, 18, 24, 16, 18, 17, 20, 10, 17, 18, 21, 23, 19, 12, 14, 9, 16, 18, 12, 14, 11. From the table (i) find the midpoints of each class interval (ii) find the class interval having maximum frequency (iii) find the range of the scores.

Solution:

(i) Mid points of 0 – 4, 5 – 9, 10 – 14, 15 – 19 and 20 – 24 are 2, 7, 12, 17 and 22 respectively.

(ii) The class interval 15 – 19 has maximum frequency

(iii) Range = 24 – 3 = 21

Question 4.

Draw a histogram for the following frequency distribution.

Solution:

Question 5.

Draw a histogram for the following frequency distribution.

Solution:

The given distribution is in the inclusive form.

d = lower limit of a class – upper limit of a class before it = 11 – 10

d = 1, \(\frac{d}{2}\) = \(\frac{1}{2}\) = 0.5

Question 6.

The marks obtained by 12 students in a mathematics examination are given below 48, 78, 93, 90, 66, 54, 83, 58, 60, 75, 89, 84. Find (i) the mean of the marks (ii) the mean mark of the student if each student is given 4 grace marks.

Solution:

(i) ∑x = 48 + 78 + 93 + 90 + 66 + 54 + 83 + 58 + 60 + 75 + 89 + 84 = 878

N = 12

(ii) If each student is given 4 grace marks then the mean = 73.17 + 4 = 77.17

Question 7.

If the mean of 8, 12, 21, 42, x is 20 find the value of x.

Solution:

∑x = 8 + 12 + 21 + 42 + x = S3 + x N = 5 Mean – 20

Mean = \(\frac{\Sigma x}{N}\)

100 = 83 + x

100 – 83 = x

∴ x = 17

Question 8.

Find the mean for the following distribution 12, 14, 10, 12, 15, 12, 18, 10, 15, 11, 19, 20, 12, 15, 19, 10, 18, 16, 20, 17.

Solution:

∑x – 12 + 14 + 10 +12 +15 + 12 + 18 + 10 + 15 + 11 + 19 + 20 + 12 + 15 + 19 + 10 + 18 + 16 + 20 + 17 = 295

N = 20
