4, 3, 2, 6, 4, 3, 2, 1, 5, 3, 2, 3, 4, 3, 5, 1, 6, 1, 3, 4, 2, 3, 4, 3, 5
(i) Arrange the above data in ascending order.
(ii) Find the range of the data.
(iii) Construct a frequency distribution table for the above data.
(iv) Find the number of houses which have 4 or more than 4 rooms.
(v) Draw bar graph to represent the above data.
Solution:**

**(i)** The ascending order of the above data is:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

**(ii)** The range of the data is:

Smallest data = 1

Highest data = 6

Range = 6 – 1 = 5

**(iii)** Frequency distribution table for the above data:

Number of rooms | Tally marks | Number of houses
(Frequency) |

1
2 3 4 5 6 |
III
IIII III III II |
3
4 8 5 3 2 |

Total | 25 |

**(iv)** Number of houses which have 4 or more rooms = 5 + 3 + 2 = 10

**(v)** The bar graph of the given data is:

**2. The given bar graph shows the number of books sold by a bookstore for five consecutive years. Read the bar graph and answer the following questions:
(i) About how many books were sold in 2008, 2009 and 2011 years?
(ii) In which years were about 475 books and 225 books sold?**

**Solution:**

The above figure shows the number of books sold by the bookstore during 5 consecutive years.

**(i)** Number of books sold in 2008 = 140

Number of books sold in 2009 = 360

Number of books sold in 2011 = 180

**(ii)** In the year 2012, 475 books were sold, and in the year 2010, 225 books were sold.

Number of students |
43 |
19 |
55 |
49 |
34 |

**Represent the given data on a bar graph.
Answer the following questions with the help of the bar graph:
(i) Which is the most preferred colour?
(ii) Which is the least preferred colour?
(iii) How many colours are there in all? What are they?
Solution:**

Given:

Total number of students = 43 + 19 + 55 + 49 + 34 = 200

**(i)** The most preferred colour is Blue colour.

**(ii)** The least preferred colour is green colour.

**(iii)** There are 5 colours in all. They are red, green, blue, yellow, orange.

**4. Sale of English and Hindi books in four consecutive years is given below:**

Years |
2008 |
2009 |

2011 |

English |
350 |
400 |
450 |
620 |

Hindi |
500 |
525 |
600 |
650 |

**Draw a double bar graph to represent the above data and answer the following questions:
(i) In which year was the difference in the sale of two language books least?
(ii) Can you say that the demand for English books rose faster? Justify your answer.
Solution:**

The bar graph is as follows:

**(i)** In the year 2011, the difference in the sale of two language books i.e., 650 – 620 = 30 which is the least sale.

**(ii)** Yes, the demand for sale of English books rose faster, 620 – 350 = 170

And increase in sale of Hindi books is 650 – 500 = 150

Hence, sale in English books is faster.

110 |

**Draw a double bar graph choosing an appropriate scale.
Answer the following questions using the bar graph:
(i) Which sports is most popular?
(ii) Which is more preferred, watching or participating in sports?
Solution:**

The bar graph is as follows:

**(i)** Cricket is the most popular sport.

**6. Find the mean of the following data:
(i) 40, 30, 30, 0, 26, 60
(ii) 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15
Solution:**

**(i)** Let us find the mean of 40, 30, 30, 0, 26, 60

Number of data (n) = 6

So,

Mean = (40 + 30 + 30 + 0 + 26 + 60)/6

= 186/6

= 31

**(ii)** Let us find the mean of 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15

Number of data (n) = 7

So,

Mean = (3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15)/7

= 63/7

= 9

**7. Find the mean of the first five whole numbers.
Solution:**

We know that the first five whole numbers are:

0, 1, 2, 3, 4

So,

Mean = (0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4)/5

= 10/5

= 2
