Exercise 20.1

1. Find the mean of 8, 6, 10, 12, 1, 3, 4, 4.

Solution:

Given data,

8, 6, 10, 12, 1, 3, 4, 4

Here, n = 8

∴ Mean (x̄)

Ʃ xi/ n = (8 + 6 + 10 + 12 + 1+ 3 + 4 + 4)/8

= 48/8 = 6

Therefore, mean of the given data is 6.

2. 5 people were asked about the time in a week they spend in doing social work in their community. They replied 10, 7, 13, 20 and 15 hours, respectively. Find the mean time in a week devoted by them for social work.

Solution:

Given data,

10, 7, 13, 20, 15

Here, n = 5

∴ Mean (x̄)

Ʃ xi/ n = (10 + 7 + 13 + 20 + 15)/5

= 65/5 = 13

Therefore, the mean time in a week devoted by them for social work is 13 hours.

3. The enrollment of a school during six consecutive years was as follows:

1620, 2060, 2540, 3250, 3500, 3710.
Find the mean enrollment.

Solution:

Given data,

1620, 2060, 2540, 3250, 3500, 3710

Here, n = 6

∴ Mean (x̄)

Ʃ xi/ n = (1620 + 2060 + 2540 + 3250 + 3500 + 3710)/5

= 16680/6 = 2780

Therefore, the mean enrollment is 2780.

4. Find the mean of the first twelve natural numbers.

Solution:

The first twelve natural numbers are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

Here, n = 12

∴ Mean (x̄)

Ʃ xi/ n = (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 + 12)/12

= 78/12 = 6.5

Therefore, the mean of the first twelve natural numbers is 6.5

5. (i) Find the mean of the first six prime numbers.

(ii) Find the mean of the first seven odd prime numbers.

Solution:

(i) First 6 prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13

Here, n = 6

∴ Mean (x̄)

Ʃ xi/ n = (2 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + 13)/6

= 41/6

Therefore, the mean of the first six prime numbers is 41/6.

(ii) First seven odd prime numbers are 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19

Here, n = 7

∴ Mean (x̄)

Ʃ xi/ n = (3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + 13 + 17 + 19)/7

= 75/7

Therefore, the mean of the first six prime numbers is 75/7.

6. (i)The marks (out of 100) obtained by a group of students in a Mathematics test are 81, 72, 90, 90, 85, 86, 70, 93 and 71. Find the mean marks obtained by the group of students.
(ii) The mean of the age of three students Vijay, Rahul and Rakhi is 15 years. If their ages are in the ratio 4 : 5 : 6 respectively, then find their ages.

Solution:

(i) The marks obtained by the group of students are:

81, 72, 90, 90, 85, 86, 70, 93, 71

Here, n = 9

∴ Mean (x̄)

Ʃ xi/ n = (81 + 72 + 90 + 90 + 85 + 86 + 70 + 93 + 71)/9

= 738/9 = 82

Therefore, the mean marks obtained by the group of students is 82.

(ii) Given, the mean of the age of three students Vijay, Rahul and Rakhi is 15 years.

So, n = 3

Now, the sum of ages of the 3 students = 15 x 3 = 45

Also given, ratio of their ages is 4 : 5 : 6

Sum of ratios = 4 + 5 + 6 = 15

Hence,

Vijay’s age = (45/15) x 4 = 12 years

Rahul’s age = (45/15) x 5 = 15 years

Rakhi’s age = (45/15) x 6 = 18 years

7. The mean of 5 numbers is 20. If one number is excluded, mean of the remaining numbers becomes 23. Find the excluded number.

Solution:

Given,

The mean of 5 numbers = 20

So, the total sum of the numbers = 20 x 5 = 100

After excluding one number,

The mean of the remaining 4 numbers = 23

So, the total sum of these numbers = 23 x 4 = 92

Hence,

The excluded number is = 100 – 92 = 8.

8. The mean of 25 observations is 27. If one observation is included, the mean still remains 27. Find the included observation.

Solution:

Given,

The mean of 25 observations is 27.

So,

The total sum of all the 25 observations = 27 x 25 = 675

After one observation is included,

Now the mean of 26 (25 + 1) numbers = 27

So,

The total sum of all the 26 observations = 27 x 26 = 702

Hence,

The included observation = 702 – 675 = 27

9. The mean of 5 observations is 15. If the mean of first three observations is 14 and that

of the last three is 17, find the third observation.

Solution:

Given,

The mean of 5 observations = 15

So, total sum of the 5 observations = 15 x 5 = 75

Also given,

Mean of first 3 observations = 14

So, the sum of the 3 observations = 14 x 3 = 42

And, the mean of last 3 observations = 17

So, the sum of last 3 observations = 17 x 3 = 51

Thus, the total of 3 + 3 observations = 42 + 51 = 93

Hence,

The third observation = 93 – 75 = 18.

10. The mean of 8 variate is 10.5. If seven of them are 3, 15, 7, 19, 2, 17 and 8, then find

the 8th variate.

Solution:

Given,

Seven out of eight variates are: 3, 15, 7, 19, 2, 17 and 8

Mean of 8 variates = 10.5

So, the total of 8 variates = 10.5 x 8 = 84

Now,

Sum of seven variates = (3 + 15 + 7 + 19 + 2 + 17 + 8) = 71

Hence,

The 8th variate = 84 – 71 = 13.

11. The mean weight of 8 students is 45.5 kg. Two more students having weights 41.7 kg and 53.3 kg join the group. What is the new mean weight?

Solution:

Given,

The mean weight of 8 students = 45.5 kg

So, the total weight of 8 students = 45.5 x 8 = 364 kg

Weight of two more students are 41.7 kg and 53.3 kg

Now,

The total weight of 10 (8 + 2) students = 364 + 41.7 + 53.3

= 364 + 95

= 459 kg

Hence, the new mean weight of all the 10 students = 459/10 = 45.9 kg

12. Mean of 9 observations was found to be 35. Later on, it was detected that an observation 81 was misread as 18. Find the correct mean of the observations.

Solution:

Given,

Mean of 9 observations = 35

So, the sum of all 9 observations = 35 x 9 = 315

Now, the difference due to misread = 81 – 18 = 63

Thus, the actual sum = 315 + 63 = 378

Hence,

The actual mean = 378/ 9 = 42.

13. A student scored the following marks in 11 questions of a question paper:

7, 3, 4, 1, 5, 8, 2, 2, 5, 7, 6.
Find the median marks.

Solution:

Given,

Marks scored in 11 questions of a question paper by the student are:

7, 3, 4, 1, 5, 8, 2, 2, 5, 7, 6

Arranging it in descending order, we have

1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7, 8

Here, n = 11 which is odd

∴ Median = (n + 1)/2th term

= (11 + 1)/2 = 12/2 = 6th term i.e 5

Hence, the median mark is 5.

14. Calculate the mean and the median of the numbers:

2, 3, 4, 3, 0, 5, 1, 1, 3, 2.

Solution:

First arrange the number in descending order

0, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4, 5

So n = 10 which is even

Mean (x̄) = Ʃ xi/ n

Substituting the values

= (0 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 4 + 5)/10

By further calculation

= 24/10

= 2.4

Median = ½ [10/2th + (10/2 + 1)th terms]

It can be written as

= ½ (5th + 6th) term

Substituting the values

= ½ (2 + 3)

= 5/2

= 2.5

15. A group of students was given a special test in Mathematics. The test was completed by the various students in the following time in (minutes):

24, 30, 28, 17, 22, 36, 30, 19, 32, 18, 20, 24.

Find the mean time and median time taken by the students to complete the test.

Solution:

First arrange the data in descending order

17, 18, 19, 20, 22, 24, 24, 28, 30, 30, 32, 36

So n = 12 which is even

Mean (x̄) = Ʃ xi/ n

Substituting the values

= (17 + 18 + 19 + 20 + 22 + 24 + 24 + 28 + 30 + 30 + 32 + 36)/2

So we get

= 300/12

= 25

Median = ½ [12/2th + (12/2 + 1)th terms]

It can be written as

= ½ (6th + 7th) terms

Substituting the values

= ½ (24 + 24)

= ½ (48)

= 24

16. In a Science test given to a group of students, the marks scored by them (out of 100) are

41, 39, 52, 48, 54, 62, 46, 52, 40, 96, 42, 40, 98, 60, 52.
Find the mean and median of this data.

Solution:

On arranging the marks obtained by the students, we have

39, 40, 40, 41, 42, 46, 48, 52, 52, 52, 54, 60, 62, 96, 98

Here, n = 15 which is odd

∴ Mean (x̄)

Ʃ xi/ n = (39 + 40 + 40 + 41 + 42 + 46 + 48 + 52 + 52 + 52 + 54 + 60 + 62 + 96 + 98)/15

= 822/15 = 54.8

And,

Median = (15 + 1)/2th term

= 16/2 = 8th term i.e. 52

Therefore, for the given data mean = 54.8 and median = 52.

17. The points scored by a Kabaddi team in a series of matches are as follows:

7, 17, 2, 5, 27, 15, 8, 14, 10, 48, 10, 7, 24, 8, 28, 18.

Find the mean and the median of the points scored by the Kabaddi team.

Solution:

Let’s arrange the given data in descending order:

2, 5, 7, 7, 8, 8, 10, 10, 14, 15, 17, 18, 24, 27, 28, 48

Here, n = 16 when is even

∴ Mean (x̄)

Ʃ xi/ n = (2 + 5 + 7 + 7 + 8 + 8 + 10 + 10 + 14 + 15 + 17 + 18 + 24 + 27 + 28 + 48)/15

= 248/16 = 15.5 points

And,

Median = ½ [(16/2)th term + (16/2 + 1)th term]

= ½ (8th term + 9th term)

= ½ (10 + 14)

= ½ x 24 = 12 points

Therefore, the mean and the median of the points scored by the Kabaddi team are 15.5 and 12 respectively.

18. The following observations have been arranged in ascending order. If the median

the data is 47.5, find the value of x.
17, 21, 23, 29, 39, 40, x, 50, 51, 54, 59, 67, 91, 93.

Solution:

Given data,

17, 21, 23, 29, 39, 40, x, 50, 51, 54, 59, 67, 91, 93

Here, n = 14 which is even

As the given data is arranged in descending order

Median = ½ [(14/2)th term + (14/2 + 1)th term]

= ½ (7th term + 8th term)

⇒ 47.5 = ½ (x + 50)

95 = x + 50

x = 95 – 50 = 45

Hence, the value of x is 45.

19. The following observations have been arranged in ascending order. If the median

the data is 13, find the value of x.
3, 6, 7, 10, x, x + 4, 19, 20, 25, 28.

Solution:

Given observations in ascending order,

3, 6, 7, 10, x, x + 4, 19, 20, 25, 28

Here, n = 10 which is even and median = 13

So,

Median = ½ [(10/2)th term + (10/2 + 1)th term]

= ½ (5th term + 6th term)

= ½ (x + x + 4)

= (2x + 4)/2

= x + 2

⇒ x + 2 = 13

x = 13 – 2 = 11

Hence, the value of x is 11.

1. Find the mean and the median of the following set of numbers:

8, 0, 5, 3, 2, 9, 1, 5, 4, 7, 2, 5.

Solution:

By arranging in descending order

0, 1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5, 5, 7, 8, 9

n = 12 which is even

Mean (x̄) = Ʃ xi/ n

Substituting the values

= (0 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 7 + 8 + 9)/12

By further calculation

= 51/12

= 17/4

= 4.25

Median = ½ [12/2th + (12/2 + 1)th terms]

= ½ [6th + 7th terms]

Substituting the values

= ½ (4 + 5)

= 9/2

= 4.5

2. Find the mean and the median of all the (positive) factors of 48.

Solution:

We know that

Positive factors of 48 are

1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 48

Here N = 10 which is even

Mean (x̄) = Ʃ xi/ n

Substituting the values

= (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 6 + 8 + 12 + 16 + 24 + 48)/10

So we get

= 124/10

= 12.4

Median = ½ [10/2 th + (10/2 + 1)th terms]

= ½ [5th + 6th terms]

Substituting the values

= ½ (6 + 8)

= 14/2

= 7

3. The mean weight of 60 students of a class is 52.75 kg. If the mean weight of 35 of them is 54 kg, find the mean weight of the remaining students.

Solution:

It is given that

Mean weight of 60 students of a class = 52.75 kg

So the total weight of 60 students = 52.75 × 60 = 3165 kg

Mean weight of 35 students among them = 54 kg

So the total weight of 35 students = 54 × 35 = 1890 kg

Remaining students = 60 – 35 = 25

Total weight of 25 students = 3165 – 1890 = 1275 kg

So the mean weight of 25 students = 1275 ÷ 25 = 51 kg

Hence, the mean weight of the remaining students is 51 kg.

4. The mean age of 18 students of a class is 14.5 years. Two more students of age 15 years and 16 years join the class. What is the new mean age?

Solution:

It is given that

Mean age of 18 students = 14.5 years

Total age = 14.5 × 18 = 261 years

Total age of 2 more students = 15 + 16 = 31 years

Total age of 18 + 2 = 20 students = 261 + 31 = 292 years

Mean age = 292/20 = 14.6 years

Hence, the new mean age is 14.6 years.

5. If the mean of the five observations x + 1, x + 3, x + 5, 2x + 2, 3x + 3 is 14, find the mean of first three observations.

Solution:

We know that

Mean of the five observations

x + 1, x + 3, x + 5, 2x + 2, 3x + 3 is 14

Mean = (x + 1 + x + 3 + x + 5 + 2x + 2 + 3x + 3)/5

By further calculation

= (8x + 14)/5

Equating to mean

(8x + 14)/5 =14

By cross multiplication

8x + 14 = 70

So we get

8x = 70 – 14 = 56

By division

x = 56/8 = 7

Mean of x + 1 + x + 3 + x + 5

We get

Mean = (x + 1 + x + 3 + x + 5)/3

By further calculation

= (3x + 9)/3

= x + 3

Substituting the value of x

= 7 + 3

= 10

Hence, the mean of first three observations is 10.

6. The mean height of 36 students of a class is 150.5 cm. Later on, it was detected that the height of one student was wrongly copied as 165 cm instead of 156 cm. Find the correct mean height.

Solution:

It is given that

Mean height of 36 students of a class = 150.5 cm

Total height = 150.5 × 36 = 5418 cm

Difference in height which was wrongly copied = 165 + 56 = 9 cm

Actual height = 5418 – 9 = 5409 cm

Actual mean height = 5409/36 = 150.25 cm

Hence, the correct mean height is 150.25 cm.

7. The mean of 40 items is 35. Later on, it was discovered that two items were misread as 36 and 29 instead of 63 and 22. Find the correct mean.

Solution:

It is given that

Mean of 40 items = 35

Total of 40 items = 35 × 40 = 1400

Difference between two items which were wrongly read = (63 + 22) – (36 + 29)

By further calculation

= 85 – 65

= 20

Here

Actual total = 1400 + 20 = 1420

Correct mean = 1420/40 = 35.5

Hence, the correct mean is 35.5.

8. 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, 75, 87, 91.

Solution:

We know that

N = 10 which is even

Median = ½ [n/2 th + (n/2 + 1)th term]

It can be written as

63 = ½ [10/2th + (10/2 + 1)th term]

63 = ½ (5th + 6th terms)

Substituting the values

63 = ½ (x + x + 2)

63 × 2 = 2x + 2

By further calculation

2x = 126 – 2 = 124

By division

x = 124/2 = 62

Therefore, the value of x is 62.

9. Draw a histogram showing marks obtained by the students of a school in a Mathematics paper carrying 60 marks.
