16, 17, 18, 3, 7, 23, 18, 13, 10, 21, 7, 1, 13, 21, 13, 15, 19, 24, 16, 3, 23, 5, 12, 18, 8, 12, 6, 8, 16, 5, 3, 5, 0, 7, 9, 12, 20, 10, 2, 23.

### Divide the data into five groups namely 0-5, 5-10, 10-15, 15-20, and 20-25, and prepare a grouped frequency table.

Solution:

The frequency table of the marks of 40 students of class VIII in an examination can be shown as –

### Problem 2: The marks scored by 20 students in a test are given below:

54, 42, 68, 56, 62, 71, 78, 51, 72, 53, 44, 58, 47, 64, 41, 57, 89, 53, 84, 57.

### What is the class interval in which the greatest frequency occurs?

Solution:

The frequency table can be completed as –

The class interval with the greatest frequency is 50-60.

### Problem 3: The following is the distribution of weights (in kg) of 52 persons:

(i) What is the lower limit of class 50-60?

(ii) Find the class marks of the classes 40-50, 50-60.

(iii) What is the class size?

Solution:

(i) The lower limit of the class 50-60 is 50.

(ii) The class mark for the class 40-50 = (40 + 50)/ 2 = 90/2 = 45

and the class mark for the class 50-60 = (50 + 60)/ 2 = 110/2 = 55

(iii) The class size is 40-30 = 10.

### Problem 4: Construct a frequency table for the following weights (in gm) of 35 mangoes using the equal class intervals, one of them is 40-45 (45 not included):

30, 40, 45, 32, 43, 50, 55, 62, 70, 70, 61, 62, 53, 52, 50, 42, 35, 37, 53, 55, 65, 70, 73, 74, 45, 46, 58, 59, 60, 62, 74, 34, 35, 70, 68.

(i) What is the class mark of the class interval 40-45?

(ii) What is the range of the above weights?

(iii) How many classes are there?

Solution:

The frequency table of the given weights of 35 mangoes using the equal class intervals and one of the class intervals as 40-45

(45 not included) can be shown as –

(i) The class mark for the class interval 40-45 = (40 + 45)/ 2 = 85/2 = 42.5

(ii) The range of the above weights = Highest value – Lowest value = 74 – 30 = 44

(iii) The number of classes = 9

### Problem 5: Construct a frequency table with class-intervals 0-5 (5 not included) of the following marks obtained by a group of 30 students in an examination:

0, 5, 7, 10, 12, 15, 20, 22, 25, 27, 8, 11, 17, 3, 6, 9, 17, 19, 21, 29, 31, 35, 37, 40, 42, 45, 49, 4, 50, 16.

Solution:

The frequency table of marks obtained by a group of 30 students in an examination with class-intervals 0-5 (5 not included) can

be shown as –
