# A study was conducted to find out the concentration of sulphur dioxide in the air in parts per million (ppm) of a certain city. The data obtained for 30 days is as follows: 0.03 0.08 0.08 0.09 0.04 0.17 0.16 0.05 0.02 0.06 0.18 0.20 0.11 0.08 0.12 0.13 0.22 0.07 0.08 0.01 0.10 0.06 0.09 0.18 0.11 0.07 0.05 0.07 0.01 0.04 (i) Make a grouped frequency distribution table for this data with class intervals as 0.00 - 0.04, 0.04 - 0.08, and so on. (ii) For how many days, was the concentration of Sulphur dioxide more than 0.11 parts per million?

Solution

Grouped frequency distribution table with classes 0.00 – 0.04, 0.04 – 0.08, etc..

The data is represented in the grouped frequency distribution is tabulated below

 The concentration of sulphur dioxide in the air (in ppm) Frequency 0.00 − 0.04 4 0.04 − 0.08 9 0.08 − 0.12 9 0.12 − 0.16 2 0.16 − 0.20 4 0.20 − 0.24 2 Total 30

(ii) The number of days in which the concentration of sulphur dioxide was more than 0.11 parts per million = 2+4+ 2 = 8
