**Solution:**

D. 144°

**Explanation:**

**(2) Different expenditures incurred on the construction of a building were shown by a pie diagram. The expenditure
Rs 45,000 on cement was shown by a sector of central angle of 75°. What was the total expenditure of the construction?
A. 2,16,000
B. 3,60,000
C. 4,50,000
D. 7,50,000**

**Solution:**

A. 2,16,000

**Explanation:**

**(3) Cumulative frequencies in a grouped frequency table are useful to find . . .
A. Mean**

**B. Median
C. Mode
D. All of these**

**Solution:**

B. Median

**Explanation:**

Median is the middle value of the set of ordered data. The position of the median is given by {(n + 1)/2}^{th} value, where n is the number of values in a set of data.

**Solution:**

**Explanation:**

Among the given option, (X_{i} – A)/g is the correct option.

Where X_{i} = values in the given data corresponding to i^{th} position.

A = Assumed mean

g = class size

Thus, (C) is the correct option.

**The median of the distances covered per litre shown in the above data is in the group . . .. .
A. 12-14
B. 14-16
C. 16-18
D. 18-20**

**Solution:**

C. 16-18

**Explanation:**

Here, (n/2)^{th} = (50/2)^{th} = 25^{th} term

cf = 23 < 25 ⇒ Median class = 16-18

Median class is the next class of interval of cumulative frequency.

Thus, option (C) is correct.

**The above data is to be shown by a frequency polygon. The coordinates of the points to show number of students in the class 4-6 are . . . .
A. (4, 8)
B. (3, 5)
C. (5, 8)
D. (8, 4)**

**Solution:**

C. (5, 8)

**Explanation:**

So, the coordinates of the points to show number of students in the class 4-6 are (5,8).

Thus, option (C) is correct.

**2. The following table shows the income of farmers in a grape season. Find the mean of their income.**

**Solution:**

Mean is given by

⇒ Mean = 4410/84

⇒ Mean = 52.5

Now, since the income is given in thousand rupees.

Then, Mean = 52.5 × 1000

⇒ Mean = 52500

Thus, mean income is Rs. 52,500.

**3. The loans sanctioned by a bank for construction of farm ponds are shown in the following table. Find the mean of the loans.**

**Solution:**

Using given data, we can construct a table which is mentioned below.

Mean is given by

⇒ Mean = 6540/100

⇒ Mean = 65.4

Now, since the loan is given in thousand rupees.

Then, Mean = 65.4 × 1000

⇒ Mean = 65400

Thus, mean loan is Rs. 65,400.

**4. The weekly wages of 120 workers in a factory are shown in the following frequency distribution table. Find the mean of the weekly wages.**

**Solution:**

Using given data, we can construct a table which is mentioned below.

Mean is given by

⇒ Mean = 510000/120

⇒ Mean = 4250

Thus, mean weekly wages is Rs. 4250.

**5. The following frequency distribution table shows the amount of aid given to 50 flood affected families. Find the mean of the amount of aid.**

**Solution:**

Using given data, we can construct a table which is mentioned below.

Mean is given by

⇒ Mean = 3620/50

⇒ Mean = 72.4

Now, since the amount of aid is given in thousand rupees.

Then, Mean = 72.4 × 1000

⇒ Mean = 72400

Thus, mean amount of aid is Rs. 72,400.

**6. The distances covered by 250 public transport buses in a day is shown in the following frequency distribution table. Find the median of the distances.**

**Solution:**

Let us prepare cumulative frequency table:

Here, N = 250

N/2 = 250/2 = 125

Since, cumulative frequency 180 is just greater than 125. ⇒ median class = 220-230

Median is given by

Where l = lower limit of the median class

N = Sum of frequencies

h = class interval of the median class

cf = Cumulative frequency of the class preceding the median class

f = Frequency of the median class

Here, Median class = 220-230

L = 220

N/2 = 125

h = 10

cf = 100

f = 80

Putting all these values in the median formula, we get

⇒ Median = 220 + 250/80

⇒ Median = 220 + 3.125 = 223.125

Or Median is approximately 223.13 km

Thus, median of the distances is 223.13 km.

Statistics is a division of Maths that deals with the study of the collection, interpretation, arrangement, and exhibition of data. Mathematically, statistics is determined as a set of equations, used to analyse the data. Learn about the chapter Statistics at BYJU’S.
