Access answers to Maths RD Sharma Solutions For Class 7 Chapter 23 – Data Handling – II (Central values) Exercise 23.4
1. Find the mode and median of the data: 13, 16, 12, 14, 19, 12, 14, 13, 14
By using the empirical relation also find the mean.
Solution:
Arranging the data in ascending order such that same numbers are put together, we get:
12, 12, 13, 13, 14, 14, 14, 16, 19
Here, n = 9.
Therefore median = ((n+1)/2)^{th} term
Median = value of 5^{th} term
Median = 14
Here, 14 occurs the maximum number of times, i.e., three times. Therefore, 14 is the mode of the data.
Now,
Mode = 3 Median â€“ 2 Mean
14 = 3 x 14 â€“ 2 Mean
2 Mean = 42 â€“ 14 = 28
Mean = 28Â Ã·Â 2
= 14.
2. Find the median and mode of the data: 35, 32, 35, 42, 38, 32, 34
Solution:
Arranging the data in ascending order such that same numbers are put together, we get:
32, 32, 34, 35, 35, 38, 42
Here, n = 7
Therefore median = ((n+1)/2)^{th} term
Median = value of 4^{th} term
Median = 35
Here, 32 and 35, both occur twice. Therefore, 32 and 35 are the two modes.
3. Â Find the mode of the data: 2, 6, 5, 3, 0, 3, 4, 3, 2, 4, 5, 2, 4
Solution:
Arranging the data in ascending order such that same values are put together, we get:
0, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 6
Here, 2, 3 and 4 occur three times each. Therefore, 2, 3 and 4 are the three modes.
4. The runs scored in a cricket match by 11 players are as follows:
6, 15, 120, 50, 100, 80, 10, 15, 8, 10, 10
Find the mean, mode and median of this data.
Solution:
Arranging the data in ascending order such that same values are put together, we get:
6, 8, 10, 10, 15, 15, 50, 80, 100, 120
Here, n = 11
Therefore median = ((n+1)/2)^{th} term
Median = value of 6^{th} term
Median = 15
Here, 10 occur three times. Therefore, 10 is the mode of the given data.
Now,
Mode = 3 Median â€“ 2 Mean
10 = 3 x 15 â€“ 2 Mean
2 Mean = 45 â€“ 10 = 35
Mean = 35Â Ã·Â 2
= 17.5
5. Find the mode of the following data:
12, 14, 16, 12, 14, 14, 16, 14, 10, 14, 18, 14
Solution:
Arranging the data in ascending order such that same values are put together, we get:
10, 12, 12, 14, 14, 14, 14, 14, 14, 16, 18
Here, clearly, 14 occurs the most number of times.
Therefore, 14 is the mode of the given data.
6. Heights of 25 children (in cm) in a school are as given below:
168, 165, 163, 160, 163, 161, 162, 164, 163, 162, 164, 163, 160, 163, 163, 164, 163, 160, 165, 163, 162
What is the mode of heights?
Also, find the mean and median.
Solution:
Arranging the data in tabular form, we get:
Height of Children (cm ) 
Tally marks 
Frequency 
160 
 
3 
161 
 
1 
162

163 

10 
164 
 
3 
165

168 
 
1 
Total 
25 
Therefore median = ((n+1)/2)^{th} term
Median = value of 13^{th} term
Median = 163 cm
Here, clearly, 163 cm occurs the most number of times. Therefore, the mode of the given data is 163 cm.
Mode = 3 Median â€“ 2 Mean
163 = 3 x 163 â€“ 2 Mean
2 Mean = 326
Mean = 163 cm.
7. The scores in mathematics test (out of 25) of 15 students are as follows:
19, 25, 23, 20, 9, 20, 15, 10, 5, 16, 25, 20, 24, 12, 20
Find the mode and median of this data. Are they same?
Solution:
Arranging the data in ascending order such that same values are put together, we get:
5, 9, 10, 12, 15, 16, 19, 20, 20, 20, 20, 23, 24, 25, 25
Here, n = 15
Therefore median = ((n+1)/2)^{th} term
Median = value of 8^{th} term
Median = 20
Here, clearly, 20 occurs most number of times, i.e., 4 times. Therefore, the mode of the given data is 20.
Yes, the median and mode of the given data are the same.
8. Calculate the mean and median for the following data:

Using empirical formula, find its mode.
Solution:
Calculation of mean
Mean = Î£ f_{i }x_{i}/ Î£ f_{i}
= 332/25
= 13.28
Here, n = 25, which is an odd number. Therefore,
Therefore median = ((n+1)/2)^{th} term
Median = value of 13^{th} term
Median = 13
Now, by using empirical formula we have,
Mode = 3Median â€“ 2 Mean
Mode = 3 (13) â€“ 2 (13.28)
Mode = 39 â€“ 26.56
Mode = 12.44.
9. The following table shows the weights of 12 persons.

Î£ f_{i} = 12 
Î£ f_{i }x_{i} = 612 
Calculation of mean
Mean = Î£ f_{i }x_{i}/ Î£ f_{i}
= 612/12
= 51 kg
Here n = 12
Therefore median = (n/2)^{th} term + ((n + 1)/2)^{th} term
Median = (value of 6^{th} term + value of 7^{th} term)/2
= (50 + 50)/2
= 50
Now by empirical formula we have,
Now,
Mode = 3 Median â€“ 2 Mean
Mode = 3 x 50 â€“ 2 x 51
Mode = 150 â€“ 102
Mode = 48 kg.
Thus, Mean = 51 kg, Median = 50 kg and Mode = 48 kg.
