(f) The class size of the grouped size frequency table given below is
5-5.2

       …. …… (.1/.2)
Solution
(a) 7. Mean= (4+10+7+7+6+9+3 +8 +9)/9=7
(b) 7    . Arranging the data in ascending order 3, 4, 6, 7, 7, 8, 9, 9, 10
(c) 2.   Two 7 and two 9
(d) 39.   Higher limit is 101 and lower limit is 62.So range 101-62=39
(e) 88
Sum of five number=5Xmean=200
Sum of four number=4Xmean=112
Subtracting, we get the number=88
(f) Class size is .2

True or False statement

Question 2
Two sections of Class XII having 30 students each appeared for Science Olympiad. The marks obtained by them are shown below:
46 31 74 68 42 54 14 61 83 48 37 26 8 64 57
93 72 53 59 38 16 88 75 56 46 66 45 61 54 27
27 44 63 58 43 81 64 67 36 49 50 76 38 47 55
77 62 53 40 71 60 58 45 42 34 46 40 59 42 29
Student having Marks above 80 are exceptional
Student obtaining below 30 marks are failed
(a) The no of student who scored more than 89 marks is 2
(b) The number who scored, marks between 50-69 is 22
(c) The number of student who scored more than 49 marks is 32
(d) The range of the marks is 85
(e) The no of exceptional students are 4
(f) Student who failed in the test are 7
Solution
First we need to draw the grouped frequency distribution of the data to easily solve the data
Class
Frequency
0-9

20-29
4
30-39
6
40-49
15
50-59
12
60-69
10
70-79
6
80-89
3
90-99
1
  1. False. Its value is 1
  2. True
  3. True.
  4. True.   Lowest value is 8 and highest is 93
  5. True.
  6. True

Multiple choice Questions

Question 3
Find x and y so that the ordered data set has a mean of 42 and a median of 35.

17, 22, 26, 29, 34, x, 42, 67, 70, y
(a) X=34, y=77
(b) X=36, y=77
(c) X=77, y=34
(d) X=77, y=36
Solution (b)
Question 4
For what value of n, the mode of the following data is 18?
 2, 5, 3, 18, 5, 18, 6, 5, n, 7, 18
(a) 18
(b) 5
(c)  It can be any value
(d) None of these
Solution (a)
There are three 5 and three 18.
For mode to be 18, n=18
Question 5
For drawing a frequency polygon of a continuous frequency distribution, we plot the Points whose ordinates are the frequencies of the respective classes and abscissae are respectively:
(a) Class marks of the classes
(b) Upper limits of preceding classes
(c) Lower limits of the classes
(d) Upper limits of the classes
Solution (a)
Question 6
There are 150 numbers. Each number is subtracted from 60 and the mean of the numbers so obtained is found to be –4.5. The mean of the given numbers is
a)  400
b) 34.5
c) 64.5
d) 55.5
Solution (d)
Mean of number -60=-4.5
So mean of number is 55.5
Question 7
The median and mean of the first 10 natural numbers are,
a) 5.5,5.5
b) 5.5,6
c) 5,6
d) None of these
Solution (a)
Mean =5.5
Median is  mean of 5 and 6 th term, So 5
Question 8
Anand says that the median of 3, 14, 19, 20, 11 is 19. What doesn’t the Anand understand about finding the median?
a) The dataset should be ascending order
b) Highest no in the dataset is the median
c) Average of lowest and highest is the median
d) None of these
Solution (a)
Question 9
The following observations are arranged in ascending order :
20, 23, 42, 53, x, x + 2, 70, 75, 82, 96
If the median is 63, find the value of x.
a) 62
b) 64
c) 60
d) None of these
Solution (a)
Median is mean of 5 and 6 term
So x+1=63
X=62
Question 10
The mean of 20 observations was 60. It was detected on rechecking that the value of 125 was wrongly copied as 25 for computation of mean. Find the correct mean
a) 67
b) 66
c) 65
d) None of the above
Solution
Let x be the sum of observation of 19 numbers leaving 125,
Then
X+25=20*60=1200
Now
X+125=20*y=20y
Subtracting
125-25=20y-1200
20y=1300
y=65
