Q.4: The length of 40 leaves of a plant are measured correct to one millimetre, and the obtained data is represented in the following table: (i) Draw a histogram to represent the given data.
(ii) Is there any other suitable graphical representation for the same data?
(iii) Is it correct to conclude that the maximum number of leaves are 153 mm long? Why?
Ans : (i) It can be observed that the length of leaves is represented in a discontinuous class interval having a difference of 1 in between them. Therefore, $$\frac{1}{2}=0.5$$ has to be added to each upper class limit and also have to subtract 0.5 from the class limits so as to make the class intervals continuous.  Taking the length of leaves on x-axis and the number of leaves on y-axis, histogram of this information can be drawn as above.
Here, 1 unit on y-axis represents 2 leaves.
(ii) Other suitable graphical representation of this data is frequency polygon.
(iii) NO, as maximum number Of leaves (i.e., 12) has their length in between 144.5 mm and 153.5 mm. It is not necessary that all ha'.oe their lengths as 153 mm. 
Q.5: The following table gives the life times of 400 neon lamps: (i) Represent the given information with the help of a histogram.
(ii) How many lamps have a life-time of more than 700 hours?
Ans : (i) By taking life time (in hours) of neon lamps on x-axis and the number of lamps on y-axis, the histogram of the given information can be drawn as follows. \
Here, 1 unit on y-axis represents 10 lamps.
(ii) It can be concluded that the number of neon lamps having their lifetime more than 700 is the sum of the number of neon lamps having their lifetime as 700 — 800,
800 - goo, and 900 - 1000.
Therefore, the number of neon lamps having their lifetime more than 700 hours is 184. (74 + 62 +48 - 184) 
Q.6: The following table gives the distribution of students of two sections according to the marks obtained by them: Represent the marks of the students of both the sections on the same graph by two frequency polygons. From the two polygons compare the performance of the two sections.
Ans : We can find the class marks Of the given class intervals by using the following
formula.
Class mark =$$\frac{\text { Upper class limit }+\text { Lower class limit }}{2}$$ Taking class marks on x-axis and frequency on y-axis and choosing an appropriate scale (1 unit - 3 for y-axis), the frequency polygon can be drawn as follows. It can be observed that the performance Of students Of section 'A' is better than the students of section 'B' in terms of good marks. 
Q.7: The runs scored by two teams A and B on the first 60 balls in a cricket match are given below: Represent the data of both the teams on the same graph by frequency polygons.
Ans : It can be observed that the class inter,zals of the given data are not continuous.
There is a gap of I in between them. Therefore, $$\frac{1}{2}=0.5$$ has to be added to the upper class limits and 0.5 has to be subtracted from the lower class limits.
Also, class mark of each interval can be found by using the following formula.

Class mark $$=\frac{\text { Upper class limit }+\text { Lower class limit }}{2}$$ Continuous data with class mark of each class interval can Be represented as follows. By taking class marks on X-axis and runs scored on y-axis, a frequency polygon can be constructed as follows. Q.8: A random survey of the number of children of various age groups playing in a park was found as follows: Draw a histogram to represent the data above.
Ans : Here, it can be observed that the data has class intervals of varying width. The proportion Of children per 1 year interval can be calculated as follows. Taking the age of children on x-axis and proportion children per 1 year interval on y-axis, the histogram can be drawn as follows. Q.9: 100 surnames were randomly picked up from a local telephone directory and a frequency distribution of the number of letters in the English alphabet in the surnames was found as follows: (i) Draw a histogram to depict the given information.
(ii) Write the class interval in which the maximum number of surnames lie.
Ans : (i) Here, it can be observed that the data has class intervals of varying width. The proportion of the number of surnames per 2 letters interval can be calculated as
follows. By taking the number of letters on X-axis and the proportion of the number of surnames per 2 letters interval on y-axis and choosing an appropriate scale (1 unit - 4 students for y axis), the histogram can be constructed as follows. (ii) The class interval in which the maximum number of surnames lies is 6 - 8 as ithas 44 surnames in it i.e., the maximum for this data. 
Q.1: The following number of goals were scored by a team in a series of 10 matches:
2, 3, 4, 5, 0, 1, 3, 3, 4, 3
Ans : The number of goals scored by the team is
2,3,4,5,0,1,3,3,4,3
Mean of data $$=\frac{\text { Sum of all observations }}{\text { Total number of observations }}$$
Mean score $$=\frac{2+3+4+5+0+1+3+3+4+3}{10}$$
$$=\frac{28}{10}=2.8$$
=2.8 goals
Arranging the number of goals in ascending order,
0,1,2,3,3,3,3,4,4,5
The number Of observations is 10, which is an even number. Therefore, median
Score will be the mean of $$\frac{10}{2}$$ i.e.,5th and $$\frac{10}{2}+1$$ i.e,6th observation while arranged in ascending or descending order
Median score= $$\frac{5^{\text { th }} \text { observation }+6^{\text { th }} \text { observation }}{2}$$
$$=\frac{3+3}{2}$$
$$=\frac{6}{2}$$
=3
Mode Of data is the observation With the maximum frequency in data.
Therefore, the mode score of data is 3 as has the maximum frequency as 4 in the
data. 
Q.2: In a mathematics test given to 15 students, the following marks (out of 100) are recorded:

Mean of data $$=\frac{\text { Sum of all observation }}{\text { Total number of observation }}$$
$$\frac{41+39+48+52+46+62+54+40+96+52+40+40+42+60}{15}$$
$$=\frac{822}{15}=54.8$$
Arranging the Scores obtained by 15 students in an ascending order,
39, 40, 40, 41, 42, 46, 48, 52, 52, 52, 54, 60, 62, 96, gs As the number Of observations is 15 which is Odd, therefore, the median Of data Will
$$\frac{15+1}{2}$$= 8th observation whether the data is arranged in an ascending or descending order.
Therefore, median score of data = 52
Made of data is observation with the maximum frequency in data. Therefore mode of this data is 52 having the highest frequency in data a 3. 
Q.3: The following observations have been arranged in ascending order. If the median of the data is 63, find the value of x.
29, 32, 48, 50, x, x + 2, 72, 78, 84, 95
Ans : It can be observed that the total number of observations in the given data is 10 (even number) . therefore the median of this data will be the mean of
$$\frac{10}{2}$$,5th and $$\frac{10}{2}+1$$ i.e.,6th observation.
Therefore, median of data = $$\frac{5^{\text { th }} \text { observation }+6^{\text { th }} \text { observation }}{2}$$
$$63=\frac{x+x+2}{2}$$
$$63=\frac{2 x+2}{2}$$
$$63=x+1$$
$$x=62$$

The value of $$\sum f_{i} x_{i}$$ and $$\sum f_{i}$$ can be calculated as follows: Mean salary= $$\frac{305000}{60}$$
=5083.33
Therefore,mean salary of 60 workers is Rs. 5083.33 
Q.6: Give one example of a situation in which
(i) the mean is an appropriate measure of central tendency.
(ii) the mean is not an appropriate measure of central tendency but the median is an appropriate measure of central tendency.
Ans : When any data has a few observations such that these are very far from the other observations in it, it is better to calculate the median than the mean of the data as median gives a better estimate of average in this case.
(i) Consider the following example — the following data represents the heights of the members of a family.
154.9 cm, 162.8 cm, 170.6 cm, 158.8 cm, 163.3 cm, 166.8 cm, 160.2 cm In this case, it can be observed that the observations in the given data are close to each other.
Therefore, mean will be calculated as an appropriate measure of central tendency.
(ii) The following data represents the marks obtained by 12 students in a test.
48, 59, 46, 52, 54, 46, 97, 42, 49, 58, 60, gg
In this case, it can be observed that there are some observations which are very far from other observations. Therefore, here, median will be calculated as an appropriate measure of central tendency. 
Q.1: A survey was conducted by a group of students as a part of their environment awareness programme, in which they collected the following data regarding the number of plants in 20 houses in a locality. Find the mean number of plants per house. Which method did you use for finding the mean, and why?
Ans : To find the class mark $$\left(x_{i}\right)$$  for each interval, the following relation is used.
Class mark $$\left(x_{i}\right)$$ $$\frac{\text { Upper class limit + Lower class limit }}{2}$$
$$x_{i} \text { and } f_{X_{i}}$$ can be calculated as follows From the table it can be observed that
$$\sum f_{i}=20$$
$$\sum f_{r} x_{i}=162$$
Mean $$\overline{x}=\frac{\sum f_{f_{i}}}{\sum f_{i}}$$
$$=\frac{162}{20}=8.1$$
Therefore mean number of plants per house is 8.1 Here, direct method has been used as the values of class marks $$\left(x_{i}\right)$$ and $$f_{i}$$ are small 
Q.2: Consider the following distribution of daily wages of 50 workers of a factory Find the mean daily wages of the workers of the factory by using an appropriate method
Ans : To find the class mark for each interval, the following relation is used,
$$x_{i}=\frac{\text { Upper class limit }+\text { Lower class limit }}{2}$$
Class size (h ) of this data =20
Taking 150 as assured mean (a) d, u and f  can be calculated as follows. From the table it can be observed that
$$\sum f_{i}=50$$
$$\sum f_{i} u_{i}=-12$$
Mean $$\overline{x}=a+\left(\frac{\sum f_{i} u_{i}}{\sum f_{i}}\right) h$$
$$=150+\left(\frac{-12}{50}\right) 20$$
$$=150-\frac{24}{5}$$
$$=150-4.8$$
$$=145.2$$
Therefore the mean daily wage of the workers of the factory is Rs 145.20 
Q.3: The following distribution shows the daily pocket allowance of children of a locality. The mean pocket allowance is Rs 18. Find the missing frequency f. Ans : To find the class mark $$\left(x_{i}\right)$$ for each interval, the following relation is used.
$$x_{i}=\frac{\text { Upper class limit }+\text { Lower class limit }}{2}$$
Given that mean pocket allowance $$\overline{x}=\operatorname{Rs} 18$$
Taking 18 as assured mean $$(a), d_{i} \text { and } f d_{i}$$ are calculated as follows. From the table, we obtain
$$\sum f_{i}=44+f$$
$$\sum f_{i} u_{l}=2 f-40$$
$$\overline{x}=a+\frac{\sum f_{i} d_{i}}{\sum f_{l}}$$
$$18=18+\left(\frac{2 f-40}{44+f}\right)$$
$$0=\left(\frac{2 f-40}{44+f}\right)$$
$$2 f-40=0$$
$$2 f=40$$
$$f=20$$
Hence the missing frequency f is 20 
Q.4: Thirty women were examined in a hospital by a doctor and the number of heartbeats per minute were recorded and summarised as follows. Find the mean heartbeats per minute for these women, choosing a suitable method. Ans : To find the class mark of each interval (x,), the following relation is used.
$$x_{i}=\frac{\text { Upper class limit }+\text { Lower class limit }}{2}$$
Class size h of this data =3
Taking 75.5 as assumed mean $$(a), d i, u_{i t}, f_{i} u_{i}$$ are calculated as follows. From the table  we obtain
$$\sum f i=30$$
$$\sum f_{\mu,}=4$$
Mean $$\overline{x}=a+\left(\frac{\sum f u_{i}}{\sum f_{i}}\right) \times h$$
$$=75.5+\left(\frac{4}{30}\right) \times 3$$
$$=75.5+0.4=75.9$$
Therefore ,mean hear beats per minute for these women are 75.9 beats per minute. 
Q.5: In a retail market, fruit vendors were selling mangoes kept in packing boxes. These boxes contained varying number of mangoes. The following was the distribution of mangoes according to the number of boxes. Find the mean number of mangoes kept in a packing box. Which method of finding the mean did you choose?
Ans : It can be observed that class intervals are not continuous. There is a gap of 1 between two class intervals. Therefore, 1/2 has to be added to the upper class limit and 1/2 has to be subtracted from the lower class limit of each interval.
Class mark (x,) can be obtained by using the following elation.
$$x_{i}=\frac{\text { Upper class limit + Lower class limit }}{2}$$
Class size (h) of this data = 3
Taking 57 as assumed mean , $$(a), d_{i}, u_{i t} f_{\mu_{i}}$$ are calculated as follows. It can be observed that
$$\sum f_{i}=400$$

Lower limit (l) of median class=20
Cumulative frequency (cf) of class preceding the median class = 5 + x
Frequency (f) of median class = 20
Class size (h) = 10
$$\begin{array}{l}{\text { Median }=l+\left(\frac{\frac{n}{2}-c f}{f}\right) \times h} \\ {28.5=20+\left[\frac{\frac{60}{2}-(5+x)}{20}\right] \times 10} \\ {8.5=\left(\frac{25-x}{2}\right)} \\ {17=25-x} \\ {x=8}\end{array}$$

Calculate the median age, if policies are given only to persons having age 18 years onwards but less than 60 year. Ans : Here, class width is not the same. There is no requirement of adjusting the frequencies according to class intervals. The given frequency table is of less than type represented with upper class limits. The policies were given only to persons with age 18 years onwards but less than 60 years. Therefore, class intervals with their respective cumulative frequency can be defined as below From the table, it can be observed that n = 100
Cumulative frequency (cf) just greater than $$\frac{n}{2}\left(\text { i.e., } \frac{100}{2}=50\right)$$ is 78 belonging  to interval 35-40
Therefore, median class =35 — 40

Lower limit (l) of median class =144 5
Class size (h) = 9
Frequency (f) of median class = 12
Cumulative frequency (cf) of class preceding median class = 17
Median $$=l+\left(\frac{\frac{n}{2}-c f}{f}\right) \times h$$
$$\begin{array}{l}{=144.5+\left(\frac{20-17}{12}\right) \times 9} \\ {=144.5+\frac{9}{4}=146.75}\end{array}$$
Therefore median length of leaves is 146.75 mm
