(i) What is the lower limit of class 50-60?
(ii) Find the class marks of the classes 40-50, 50-60.
(iii) What is the class size?

Solution:

(i) The lower limit of the class 50-60 is 50.

(ii) Class mark for the class 40-50:

i.e., (40+50) / 2 = 90/2 = 45

Again, Class mark for the class 50-60:

i.e., (50+60) / 2 = 110/2 = 55

(iii) Here the class size is 40-30, i.e. 10.

(i) Class mark for the class interval 40 – 45:

Class mark = (40+45) / 2 = 85/2 = 42.5

(ii) Range of the above weights:

Range = Highest value – Lowest value

Range = 74 – 30 = 44

(iii) Number of classes = 9
