Exercise 33(A)

1.Marks scored by 30 students of class VI are as given below:

38, 46, 33, 45, 63, 53, 40, 85, 52, 75, 60, 73, 62, 22, 69, 43, 45, 33, 47, 41, 29, 43, 37, 49, 83, 44, 55, 22, 35 and 45. State:

(i) the highest marks scored

(ii) the lowest marks scored

(iii) the range of marks

Solution:

(i) The highest marks scored is 85

(ii) The lowest marks scored is 22

(iii) Range of marks = Difference between highest and lowest marks

= 85 â€“ 22

= 63

Therefore, the range of marks is 63

2. For the following raw data, form a discrete frequency distribution:

30, 32, 32, 28, 34, 34, 32, 30, 30, 32, 32, 34, 30, 32, 32. 28, 32, 30, 28, 30, 32, 32, 30, 28 and 30

Solution:

The required frequency table is shown below

MarksÂ  Â  Tally marksÂ  Â  Frequency

28Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â Â Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â 4

TotalÂ  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  25

3. Define:

(i) data

(ii) frequency of an observation

Solution:

(i) Data: Information in the form of numerical figures is known as data

(ii) Frequency of an observation: The number of times a particular observation occurs is known as its frequency

4. Rearrange the following raw data in descending order:

5.3, 5.2, 5.1, 5.7, 5.6, 6.0, 5.5, 5.9, 5.8, 6.1, 5.5, 5.8, 5.7, 5.9 and 5.4. Then write the:

(i) highest value

(ii) lowest value

(iii) range of values

Solution:

The given numbers in descending order are as follows:

6.1, 6.0, 5.9, 5.9, 5.8, 5.8, 5.7, 5.7, 5.6, 5.5, 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2, 5.1

(i) Hence, the highest value is 6.1

(ii) Hence, the lowest value is 5.1

(iii) Range of values = Difference between highest value and lowest value

Hence,

Range of values = highest value â€“ lowest value

= 6.1 â€“ 5.1

= 1.0

5. Represent the following data in the form of a frequency distribution:

52, 56, 72, 68, 52, 68, 52, 68, 52, 60, 56, 72, 56, 60, 64, 56, 48, 48, 64 and 64

7. The following data represents the weekly wages (in Rs) of 15 workers in a factory:

900, 850, 800, 850, 800, 750, 950, 900, 950, 800, 750, 900, 750, 800 and 850

Prepare a frequency distribution table. Now find,

(i) how many workers are getting less than Rs 850 per week?

(ii) how many workers are getting more than Rs 800 per week?

Solution:

The required frequency table is as follows:

Weekly wage (in Rs.)Â  Â  Â  Â  Tally marksÂ  Â  Â Frequency

750Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â Â Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  3

800Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  4

850Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â Â Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  3

900Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â Â Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  3

950Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â Â Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â 2

Total no. of workersÂ  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â 15

(i) Number of workers getting less than Rs 850 per week are,

Number of workers getting Rs 750 = 3 workers

Number of workers getting Rs 800 = 4 workers

Hence, workers getting less than Rs 850 = 4 + 3

= 7 workers

Therefore, 7 workers are getting less than Rs 850 per week

(ii) Number of workers getting more than Rs 800 per week are,

Number of workers getting Rs 850 = 3

Number of workers getting Rs 900 = 3

Number of workers getting Rs 950 = 2

So, number of workers getting more than Rs 800 = 3 + 3 + 2

= 8 workers

Therefore, 8 workers are getting more than Rs 800 per week

8. Using the data, given below, construct a frequency distribution table:

9, 17, 12, 20, 9, 18, 25, 17, 19, 9, 12, 9, 12, 18, 17, 19, 20, 25, 9 and 12. Now answer the following:

(i) How many numbers are less than 19?

(ii) How many numbers are more than 20?

(iii) Which of the numbers, given above, is occurring most frequently?

Solution:

The required frequency table is as follows:

19Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  2

20Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â Â Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  2

25Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â Â Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â 2

TotalÂ  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â 20

(i) Total numbers less than 19 = 14

(ii) Total numbers more than 20 = 2

(iii) The number 9 occurs 5 times.

Hence, the number which is occurring most frequently is 9

9. Using the following data, construct a frequency distribution table: 46, 44, 42, 54, 52, 60, 50, 58, 56, 62, 50, 56, 54, 58 and 48
