**1. For class interval 20-25 write the lower-class limit and the upper-class limit.**

**Solution:**

For class interval 20-25,

Lower class limit = 20

Upper class limit = 25

**2. Find the class-mark of the class 35-40.**

**Solution:**

**3. If class mark is 10 and class width is 6 then find the class.**

**Solution:**

We know that

Class size = upper limit â€“ lower limit

â‡’Â Upper limit â€“ lower limit = 6 â€¦â€¦ (1)

Also,Â we know that

**5. In a basket there are 10 tomatoes. The weight of each of these tomatoes in grams is as follows 60, 70, 90, 95, 50, 65, 70, 80, 85, 95.Find the median of the weights of tomatoes.**

**Solution:**

Here, n=10

So median = Mean of fifth and sixth observations.

Arrange data in ascending order,

50, 60,65, 70,70, 80, 85, 90,95,95

**6. A hockey player has scored following number of goals in 9 matches.5, 4, 0, 2, 2, 4, 4, 3, 3. Find the mean, median and mode of the data.**

**Solution:**

**7. The calculated mean of 50 observations was 80. It was later discovered that observation 19 was recorded by mistake as91. What was the correct mean?**

**Solution:**

We know that

â‡’Â Sum of observations = Mean Ã—Total number of observations

Given mean of 50 observations = 80

â‡’Â Sum of 50 observations=80Ã—50

â‡’Â Sum of 50 observations =4000

For correct mean, we will subtract 91 and add 19 to the sum.

**8. Following 10 observations are arranged in ascending order as follows.2, 3, 5, 9, x + 1, x + 3, 14, 16, 19, 20If the median of the data is 11, find the value of x.**

**Solution:**

Here, n=10

So median = Mean of fifth and sixth observations.

â‡’Â 2x + 4=22

â‡’Â x=9

**9. The mean of 35 observations is 20, out of which mean of first 18 observations is 15and mean of last 18 observation is 25. Find the 18th observation.**

Solution:

We know that

â‡’Â Sum of observations = Mean Ã—Total number of observations

Sum of 35 observations = 20Ã—35=700

Sum of first 18 observations = 15Ã—18=270

Sum of last 18 observations = 25Ã— 18=450

While adding first 18 observations and last 18 observations, we add 18^{th}Â observation twice so,

18^{th}Â observation= Sum of first 18 observations + Sum of last 18 observations – Sum of 35 observations

â‡’Â 18^{th}Â observation= 270 + 450 â€“ 700 =20

**10. The mean of 5 observations is 50. One of the observations was removed from the data, hence the mean became 45. Find the observation which was removed.**

**Solution:**

We know that

â‡’Â Sum of observations = Mean Ã—Total number of observations

Sum of 5 observations = 50Ã—5=250

Sum after removing one observation = 4Ã—45=180

â‡’Â Removed observation = sum of 5 observations â€“ Sum after removing one observation

â‡’Â Removed observation = 250 -180 =70

**11. There are 40 students in a class, out of them 15 are boys. The mean of marks obtained by boys is 33 and that for girls is 35. Find out the mean of all students in the class.**

**Solution:**

We know that

â‡’Â Sum of observations = Mean Ã—Total number of observations

Mean of marks obtained by 15 boys = 33

â‡’Â Total marks obtained by boys = 33Ã—15=495

Number of girls = 40 – 15=25

And Mean of marks obtained by 25 girls = 35

â‡’Â Total marks obtained by girls = 35Ã—25=8755

Total marks obtained by class = Total marks obtained by boys and girls = 495 + 875

=1370

**12. The weights of 10 students (in kg) are given below:40, 35, 42, 43, 37, 35, 37, 37, 42, 37. Find the mode of the data.**

**Solution:**

Mode is the maximum occurring observation.

Arrange the data in ascending order.

35, 35, 37, 37, 37, 37, 40, 42, 42,43

37 occurs four times.

Mode = 37kg

**13. In the following table, the information is given about the number of families and the siblings in the families less than 14 years of age. Find the mode of the data.**

**Solution:**

From the data, we observe that 25 families have 2 siblings which is the highest so mode is 2 siblings.

**14. Find the mode of the following data.**

**Solution:**

From the data, we observe that 9 students have got 35 and 37 marks which is the highest so mode is 35 and 37 marks.

**Solution:**

B. 10 â€“ 20

**Explanation:**

These classes are exclusive in nature which means the classes are continuous. The class 0-10 include 0 and all the numbers less than 10 while class 10 â€“ 20 include 10 and all the numbers less than 20 and so on.

**Solution:**

**Explanation:**

**vi. The mean of five numbers is 80, out of which mean of 4 numbers is 46, find the 5th number:A. 4B. 20C. 434D. 66**

**Solution:**

D. 66

**Explanation:**

5^{th}Â number = Sum of five numbers â€“ Sum of four numbers

= (5 x 50) â€“ (4 x 46)

= 250 â€“ 184

= 66

**vii. Mean of 100 observations is 40. The 9th observation is 30. If this is replaced by70 keeping all other observations same, find the new mean.A. 40.6B. 40.4C. 40.3D. 40.7**

**Solution:**

B. 40.4

**Explanation:**

We know that

â‡’Â Sum of observations = Mean Ã— Total number of observations

â‡’Â Sum of 100 observations = 40Ã—100 = 4000

For new mean, we will subtract 30 and add 70 to the sum.

**viii. What is the mode of 19, 19, 15, 20, 25, 15, 20, 15?A. 15B. 20C. 19D. 25**

**Solution:**

A. 15

**Explanation:**

Mode is the most frequently occurring observation. On arranging above data in ascending order, we get: 15, 15, 15, 19, 19, 20, 20, 25. Hence, 15 is the mode as it has the highest frequency(3 times)

**ix. What is the median of 7, 10, 7, 5, 9, 10?A. 7B. 9C. 8D. 10**

**Solution:**

C. 8

**Explanation:**

Here, n=6

So median = Mean of third and fourth observations.

On arranging above data in ascending order, we get: 5, 7,7,9,10,10

â‡’Â 3^{rd}Â term = 7 and 4^{th}Â term = 9

**x. From following table, what is the cumulative frequency of less than type for the class 30-40?**

**A. 13B. 15C. 35D. 22**

**Solution:**

C. 35

**Explanation:**

Cumulative Frequency of less than type of the 30-40= sum of the frequencies of all the classes upto 30-40

â‡’Â Required cumulative frequency =7 + 3 + 12 + 13=35

**2. The mean salary of 20 workers is Rs.10, 250. If the salary of office superintendent is added, the mean will increase by Rs.750. Find the salary of the office superintendent.**

**Solution:**

We know that,

â‡’Â Sum of salary of 20 workers= 20Ã—10250 …(1)

And Mean increases by 750 when salary of superintendent is also added to it.

â‡’Â Salary of superintendent + 20Ã—10250 = 11000 Ã— 21

â‡’Â Salary of superintendent =231000 – 205000

â‡’Â Salary of superintendent =26000

**3. The mean of nine numbers is 77. If one more number is added to it than the mean increases by 5. Find the number added in the data.**

**Solution:**

We know that

â‡’Â Sum of observations = Mean Ã— Total number of observations

â‡’Â Sum of 9 numbers = 9Ã—77 ..(1)

And Mean increases by 5 when one more number is also added to it.

â‡’Â New number + 9Ã—77 = 82 Ã— 5

â‡’Â New number =820 â€“ 693 = 127

**8. There are 10 observations arranged in ascending order as given below.45,47,50,52, x, x + 2, 60,62,63,74. The median of these observations is 53.Find the value of x. Also find the mean and the mode of the data.**

**Solution:**

The Mean, Median and Mode are the arithmetic average of a data set. This is found by adding the numbers in a data set and dividing by how many numbers there are. The median is the middle number in a data set when the numbers are listed in either ascending or descending order. The mode is the value that occurs the most often in a data set, and the range is the difference between the highest and lowest values in a data set.
