Classes | 0-50 | 50-100 | 100-150 | 150-200 | 200-250 | 250-300 | 300-350 |

Frequency | 2 | 3 | 5 | 6 | 5 | 3 | 1 |

**Solution:**

Let mean (A) = 175

Find Median:Here N = 25, 5/3 = 25/2 = 12.5 or 13, it lies in the class interval = 50-200.

l = 150, F = 10, f = 6, h = 50

Using median formula, we get

= 150 + 20.83

= 170.83

Find Mean:Using mean formula we get

= 175 – 6

= 169

Find Mode:Using mode formula we get

= 150 + 25

= 175

### Question 12. A student noted the number of cars passing through a spot on a road for 100 periods each of 3 minutes and summarized it in the table given below. Find the mode of the data.

Number of cars | 0-10 | 10-20 | 20-30 | 30-40 | 40-50 | 50-60 | 60-70 | 70-80 |

Frequency | 7 | 14 | 13 | 12 | 20 | 11 | 15 | 8 |

**Solution:**

From the given table we conclude that

Modal class = 40-50 (it has maximum frequency)

Also,

l = 40, f = 20, f

_{1}= 12, f_{2}= 11 and h = 10By using mode formula, we get

= 40 + 4.70

= 44.7

### Question 13. The following frequency distribution gives the monthly consumption of electricity of 68 consumers of a locality. Find the median, mean, and mode of the data and compare them:

Monthly consumption(in units) | 65-85 | 85-105 | 105-125 | 125-145 | 145-165 | 165-185 | 185-205 |

No. of consumers | 4 | 5 | 13 | 20 | 14 | 8 | 4 |

**Solution:**

Let mean (A) = 135

Find Median:Here, N = 34

N/2 = 34,

Class interval = 25-145

Also,

l = 125, F = 22, f = 20 and h = 20

By using the median formula, we get

= 125 + 12

= 137 units

Find Mean:By using the mean formula, we get

Mean =

= 135 + 2.05

= 137.05 units

Find Mode:By using the mode formula, we get

= 125 + 10.76

= 135.76 units

### Question 14. 100 surnames were randomly picked up from a local telephone directory and the frequency distribution of the number of letters in the English alphabets in the surnames was obtained as follows:

Number of letters | 1-4 | 4-7 | 7-10 | 10-13 | 13-16 | 16-19 |

Number of surnames | 6 | 30 | 40 | 16 | 4 | 4 |

### Determine the median number of letters in the surnames. Find the mean number of letters in the surnames. Also, And the modal size of the surnames.

**Solution:**

Let mean (A) = 8.5

Number of lettersClass Marks(x)No. of surnames (f)c.f.d = x- Af.d.1-4 2.5 6 6 -6 -36 4-7 5.5 30 36 -3 -90 7-10 8.5-A 40 76 0 0 10-13 11.5 16 92 3 48 13-16 14.5 4 96 6 24 16-19 17.5 4 100 9 36 Total100-18

Find Median:Here, N = 100

So, N/2 = 50

Class interval = 7-10

l = 7, F = 36, f = 40 and h =3

By using the median formula, we get

= 7 + 1.05

= 8.05

Find Mean:By using the mean formula, we get

Mean =

= 8.5 + 0.18

= 8.32

Find Mode:We have,

N = 100

N/2 = 100/2 = 50

Here, the cumulative frequency is just greater than N/2 = 76,

Hence, the median class = 7 – 10

l = 7, h = 10 – 7 = 3, f = 40, F = 36

By using the mode formula, we get

Mode = l +

= 7 +

= 7 + 30/34

= 7 + 0.88

= 7.88

### Question 15. Find the mean, median, and mode of the following data:

Class | 0 – 20 | 20 – 40 | 40 – 60 | 60 – 80 | 80 – 100 | 100 – 120 | 120 – 140 |

Frequency | 6 | 8 | 10 | 12 | 6 | 5 | 3 |

**Solution:**

Find Mean:By using the mean formula, we get

Mean =

Find Median:We have,

N = 50

Then, N/2 = 50/2 = 25

Here, the cumulative frequency just greater than N/2 = 36

Hence, the median class = 60 – 80

l = 60, h = 80 – 60 = 20, f = 12, F = 24

By using the median formula, we get

Median = l +

= 60 +

= 60 + 20/12

= 60 + 1.67

= 61.67

Find Mode:We have,

The maximum frequency = 12

Model class = 60 – 80

l = 60, h = 80 – 60 = 20, f = 12, f

_{1}= 10, f_{2}= 6By using the mode formula, we get

Mode = l +

= 60 +

= 60 + 40/8

= 65

### Question 16. The following data gives the distribution of total monthly household expenditure of 200 families of a village. Find the modal monthly expenditure of the families. Also, find the mean monthly expenditure:

Expenditure | Frequency | Expenditure | Frequency |

1000 – 1500 | 24 | 3000 – 3500 | 30 |

1500 – 2000 | 40 | 3500 – 4000 | 22 |

2000 – 2500 | 33 | 4000 – 4500 | 16 |

2500 – 3000 | 28 | 4500 – 5000 | 7 |

**Solution:**

From the given table we conclude that

The maximum class frequency = 40

So, modal class = 1500 – 2000

l = 1500, f = 40, h = 500, f

_{1 }= 24, f_{2 }= 33By using the mode formula, we get

Mode = l +

= 1500 +

= 1500 +

= 1500 + 347.826

= 1847.826 ≈ 1847.83

Hence, the modal monthly expenditure = Rs. 1847.83

Now we will find class marks as

Class mark =

Class size (h) of given data = 500

Let mean(a) = 2750, now we are going to calculate d

_{i}u_{i}as follows:

Expenditure (In Rs)Number of families f_{i}X_{i}d_{i}= x_{i}– 2750U_{i}f_{i}u_{i}1000 – 1500 24 1250 -1500 -3 -72 1500 – 2000 40 1750 -1000 -2 -80 2000 – 2500 33 2250 -500 -1 -33 2500 – 3000 28 2750 0 0 0 3000 – 3500 30 3250 500 1 30 3500 – 4000 22 3750 1000 2 44 4000 – 4500 16 4250 1500 3 48 4500 – 5000 7 4750 2000 4 28 Total200-35From the table we conclude that

∑f

_{i }= 200∑f

_{i}d_{i }= -35Mean = a +

= 2750 +

= 2750 – 87.5

= 2662.5

Hence, the mean monthly expenditure = Rs. 2662.5

### Question 17. The given distribution shows the number of runs scored by some top batsmen of the world in one day international cricket matches.

Runs scored | No. of batsmen | Runs scored | No. of batsmen |

3000 – 4000 | 4 | 7000 – 8000 | 6 |

4000 – 5000 | 18 | 8000 – 9000 | 3 |

5000 – 6000 | 9 | 9000 – 10000 | 1 |

6000 – 7000 | 7 | 10000 – 11000 | 1 |

### Find the mode of the data

**Solution:**

From the given table we conclude that

The maximum class frequency = 18

So, modal class = 4000 – 5000

and

l = 4000, f = 18, h = 1000, f

_{1 }= 4, f_{2 }= 9By using the mode formula, we get

Mode = l +

= 4000 +

= 4000 + (14000/23)

= 4000 + 608.695

= 4608.695

Hence, the mode of given data = 4608.7 runs.

### Question 18. The frequency distribution table of agriculture holdings in a village is given below:

Area of land (in hectares): | 1 – 3 | 3 – 5 | 5 – 7 | 7 – 9 | 9 – 11 | 11 – 13 |

Number of families | 20 | 45 | 80 | 55 | 40 | 12 |

### Find the modal agriculture holdings of the village.

**Solution:**

From the given table we conclude that

The maximum class frequency = 80,

So, the modal class = 5-7

and

l = 5, f

_{0}= 45, h = 2, f_{1 }= 80, f_{2 }= 55By using the mode formula, we get

Mode = l +

= 5 +

= 5 +

= 5 +

= 5 + 1.2

= 6.2

So, the modal agricultural holdings of the village = 6.2 hectares.

### Question 19. The monthly income of 100 families are given as below:

Income in (in Rs) | Number of families |

0 – 5000 | 8 |

5000 – 10000 | 26 |

10000 – 15000 | 41 |

15000 – 20000 | 16 |

20000 – 25000 | 3 |

25000 – 30000 | 3 |

30000 – 35000 | 2 |

35000 – 40000 | 1 |

### Calculate the modal income.

**Solution:**

From the given table we conclude that

The maximum class frequency = 41,

So, modal class = 10000-15000.

Here, l = 10000, f

_{1}= 41, f_{0}= 26, f_{2}= 16 and h = 5000Therefore, by using the mode formula, we get

Mode = l +

= 10000 +

= 10000 +

= 10000 +

= 10000 + 15 × 125

= 10000 + 1875

= 11875

So, the modal income = Rs. 11875.
