1. A student got the following marks in 9 questions of a question paper.

3, 5, 7, 3, 8, 0, 1, 4 and 6.

Find the median of these marks.

Solution:

Arranging the given data in descending order:

8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 3, 1, 0

Clearly, the middle term is 4 which is the 5thÂ term.

Hence, median = 4

2. The weights (in kg) of 10 students of a class are given below:

21, 28.5, 20.5, 24, 25.5, 22, 27.5, 28, 21 and 24.

Find the median of their weights.

Solution:

Arranging the given data in descending order:

28.5, 28, 27.5, 25.5, 24, 24, 22, 21, 21, 20.5

Itâ€™s seen that,

The middle terms are 24 and 24, 5thÂ and 6thÂ terms

Thus,

Median = (24 + 24)/ 2 = 48/2 = 24

3. The marks obtained by 19 students of a class are given below:

27, 36, 22, 31, 25, 26, 33, 24, 37, 32, 29, 28, 36, 35, 27, 26, 32, 35 and 28. Find:

(i) median (ii) lower quartile

(iii) upper quartile (iv) interquartile range

Solution:

Arranging in ascending order:

22, 24, 25, 26, 26, 27, 27, 28, 28, 29, 21, 32, 32, 33, 35, 35, 36, 36, 37

(i) The middle term is 10thÂ term i.e. 29

Hence, median = 29

(ii) Lower quartile

(iii) Upper quartile =

(iv) Interquartile range = q3Â – q1Â =35 – 26 = 9

4. From the following data, find:

(i) Median

(ii) Upper quartile

(iii) Inter-quartile range

25, 10, 40, 88, 45, 60, 77, 36, 18, 95, 56, 65, 7, 0, 38 and 83

Solution:

Arranging the given data in ascending order, we have:

0, 7, 10, 18, 25, 36, 38, 40, 45, 56, 60, 65, 77, 83, 88, 95

(i) Median is the mean of 8thÂ and 9thÂ term

Thus, median = (40 + 45)/ 2 = 85/2 = 42.5

(ii) Upper quartile =

(iii) Interquartile range is given by,

q1 = 16th/4 term = 18; q3 = 65

Interquartile range = q3 â€“ q1

Thus,

q3 â€“ q1 = 65 â€“ 18 = 47

5. The ages of 37 students in a class are given in the following table:

 Age (in years) 11 12 13 14 15 16 Frequency 2 4 6 10 8 7

Find the median.

Solution:

 Age (in years) Frequency Cumulative Frequency 11 2 2 12 4 6 13 6 12 14 10 22 15 8 30 16 7 37

Number of terms (n) = 37

Median =Â

And, the 19th term is 14

Therefore, the median = 14
