## Exercise 18E

Question 1: Find the median of the following data by making a â€˜less than ogiveâ€™.

 Marks 0âˆ’10 10âˆ’20 20âˆ’30 30âˆ’40 40âˆ’50 50âˆ’60 60âˆ’70 70âˆ’80 80âˆ’90 90âˆ’100 Number of students 5 3 4 3 3 4 7 9 7 8

Solution:

Plot points: (10, 5), (20, 8), (30, 12), (40, 15), (50, 18), (60, 22), (70, 29), (80, 38), (90, 45) and (100, 53) to get the â€˜less than typeâ€™ ogive as follows:

From frequency table, N = 53

N/2 = 26.5

Mark y = 26.5 on y-axis

Through A, draw a horizontal line meeting the curve at P.

Through P, a vertical line is drawn which meets OX at M.

OM = 68 units

Hence, median = 68

Question 2: The given distribution shows the number of wickets taken by the bowlers in one-day international cricket matches:

 Number of wickets Less than 15 Less than 30 Less than 45 Less than 60 Less than 75 Less than 90 Less than 105 Less than 120 Number of bowlers 2 5 9 17 39 54 70 80

Draw a â€˜less than typeâ€™ ogive from the above data. Find the median.

Solution:

Plot points on graph:

(15, 2), (30, 5), (45, 9), (60, 17), (75, 39), (90, 54), (105, 70) and (120, 80) to get the â€˜less than typeâ€™ ogive as follows:

From frequency table, N = 80, â‡¨ N/2 = 40

At y = 40,

Draw a horizontal line meeting the curve at P, AP

Draw a vertical line from point P which is parallel to y-axis and meets OX at Aâ€™.

OA’ = 77 units

Median number of wickets = 77

Question 3: Draw a â€˜more thanâ€™ ogive for the data given below which gives the marks of 100 students.

 Marks 0âˆ’10 10âˆ’20 20âˆ’30 30âˆ’40 40âˆ’50 50âˆ’60 60âˆ’70 70âˆ’80 Number of students 4 6 10 10 25 22 18 5

Solution:

Plot points on the graph:

(0, 100), (10, 96), (20, 90), (30, 80), (40, 70), (50, 45), (60, 23) and (70, 5) to get the â€˜more than typeâ€™ ogive as follows:

From frequency table, N = 100 â‡¨ N/2 = 50.

At y = 50

Draw a horizontal line meeting the curve at P, AP

Draw a vertical line from point P which is parallel to y-axis and meets OX at M.

OM = 47 units

Median marks = 47

Question 4:The height of 50 girls of class X of a school are recorded as follows:

 Height (in cm) 135âˆ’140 140âˆ’145 145âˆ’150 150âˆ’155 155âˆ’160 160âˆ’165 Number of girls 5 8 19 12 14 2

Draw a â€˜more than typeâ€™ ogive for the above data.

Solution:

Plot the points on the graph:

(135, 50), (140, 45), (145, 37), (150, 28), (155, 16) and (160, 2) to get the â€˜more than typeâ€™ ogive as follows:

From frequency table, N = 50 â‡¨ N/2 = 25

At y = 25

Draw a horizontal line meeting the curve at P, AP

Draw a vertical line from point P which is parallel to y-axis and meets OX at M.

OM = 151 units

Median height = 151 cm

Question 5: The monthly consumption of electricity (in units) of some families of a locality is given in the following frequency distribution:

 Monthly consumption (in units) 140âˆ’160 160âˆ’180 180âˆ’200 200âˆ’220 220âˆ’240 240âˆ’260 260âˆ’280 Number of families 3 8 15 40 50 30 10

Prepare a â€˜more than typeâ€™ ogive for the following frequency distribution.

Solution:

Plot the points on the graph:

(140, 156), (160, 153), (180, 145), (200, 130), (220, 90), (240, 40) and (260, 10) to get the â€˜more than typeâ€™ ogive as follows:

From frequency table, N = 156 â‡¨ N/2 = 78

At y = 78

Draw a horizontal line meeting the curve at P, AP

Draw a vertical line from point P which is parallel to y-axis and meets OX at M.

OM = 226 units

Median consumption of electricity = 226 units
