The blood groups of 30 students of Class VIII are recorded as follows:

A, B, O, O, AB, O, A, O, B, A, O, B, A, O, O,

A, AB, O, A, A, O, O, AB, B, A, O, B, A, B, O.

Represent this data in the form of a frequency distribution table. Which is the most common, and which is the rarest, blood group among these students?

The number of students who have a certain type of blood group is called frequency of the blood group

The below Frequency distribution is prepared

It is given that a grouped frequency distribution table of class size 5 has to be constructed. Therefore, the class intervals will be 0 − 5, 5 − 10, 10 − 15, 15 −20…

By observing the data given as above, a grouped frequency distribution table can be constructed as follows.
