### Samacheer Kalvi 10th Maths Chapter 8: Statistics and Probability Book Exercise 8.1 Questions and Solutions

Question 1: Find the range and coefficient of range of the following data: 63, 89, 98, 125, 79, 108, 117, 68.

Solution:

L – 125 and S = 63

Range = L – S

= 125 – 63

Range = L – S = 62

Coefficient of range = (L – S) / (L + S)

L + S = 125 + 63 = 188

Coefficient of range = 62 / 188

= 31 / 94

= 0.33

Question 2: Find the variance and standard deviation of the wages of 9 workers given below:

₹310, ₹290, ₹320, ₹280, ₹300, ₹290, ₹320, ₹310, ₹280.

Solution:

First, let us write the wages of 9 workers in ascending order.

280, 280, 290, 290, 300, 310, 310, 320, 320 x d = x – A d = x – 300 d2 280 -20 400 280 -20 400 290 -10 100 290 -10 100 300 0 0 310 10 100 310 10 100 320 20 400 320 20 400 Σd = 0 Σd2 = 2000

Σd2 / n = 2000 / 9

(Σd / n)2 = (0 / 9)2 = 0

σ = √(2000 / 9)

σ = √222.22

σ = 14.91

Question 3: If the standard deviation of a data is 3.6 and each value of the data is divided by 3, then find the new variance and new standard deviation.

Solution:

While multiplying or dividing every element by the constant “k” then the standard deviation will be multiplied or divided by some constant “k”.

Since every element is multiplied by 3, it is required to divide the standard deviation by 3 to obtain the standard deviation of the new data set.

= 3.6 / 3

= 1.2

Variance = 1.44

Question 1: The total marks scored by two students Sathya and Vidhya in 5 subjects are 460 and 480 with a standard deviation of 4.6 and 2.4, respectively. Who is more consistent in performance?

Solution:

Sathya:

Sum of marks in 5 subjects = 460

Mean marks of Sathya (x̄) = Σx / n = 460 / 5 = 92

Standard deviation (σ) = 4.6

Coefficient of variation (C.V) = (σ / x̄) ⋅ 100%

= (4.6 / 92) ⋅ 100%

= 0.05 ⋅ 100%

= 5%

Vidhya:

Sum of marks in 5 subjects = 480

Mean marks of Vidhya (x̄) = Σx / n = 480 / 5 = 96

Standard deviation (σ) = 2.4

Coefficient of variation (C.V) = (σ / x̄) ⋅ 100%

= (2.4 / 96) ⋅ 100%

= 0.25 ⋅ 100%

= 25%

So, Vidhya is more consistent.

Question 2: The standard deviation and coefficient of variation of a data are 1.2 and 25.6, respectively. Find the value of the mean.

Solution:

Standard deviation = 1.2

Coefficient of variation = 25.6

Coefficient of variation (C.V) = (σ / x̄) ⋅ 100%

25.6 = (1.2 / x̄) ⋅ 100%

x̄ = (1.2 / 25.6) / 100% = 4.687

x̄ = 4.69

Question 3: If the mean and coefficient of variation of a data are 15 and 48, respectively, then find the value of standard deviation.

Solution:

Mean (x̄) = 15

Coefficient of variation (C.V) = 48

Coefficient of variation (C.V) = (σ / x̄) ⋅ 100%

48 = (σ / 15) ⋅ 100%

σ = (48 ⋅ 15) / 100

= 720 / 100

x̄ = 7.2

Question 1: If A is an event of a random experiment such that P(A) : P (A bar) = 17:15 and n(S) = 640 then find

(i) P (A bar)

(ii) n(A)

Solution:

P(A) : P (A bar) = 17 : 15

P(A) / P (A bar) = 17 / 15

P(A) / [1 – P (A)] = 17 / 15

15 P(A) = 17 [1 – P(A)]

15 P(A) = 17 – 17 P(A)

15 P(A) + 17 P(A) = 17

32 P(A) = 17

P(A) = 17 / 32

P(A) = n(A) / n(S)

P(A) = (17 / 32) ⋅ (20 / 20)

P(A) = 340 / 640

P(A bar) = 1 – P(A)

= 1 – (340 / 640)

= 300 / 640

P(A bar) = 15 / 32

n(A) = 340

Question 2: A coin is tossed thrice. What is the probability of getting two consecutive tails?

Solution:

The required sample space = {HHH. HHT, HTH, HTT, THH, THT, TTH, TTT}

n(S) = 8

Let A be the event of getting two consecutive tails

A = { HTT, TTH, TTT }

n(A) = 3

P(A) = n(A) / n(S)

P(A) = 3 / 8

### Samacheer Kalvi 10th Maths Chapter 8: Statistics and Probability Book Exercise 8.4 Questions and Solutions

Question 1: If A and B are two mutually exclusive events of a random experiment and P(not A) = 0.45, P(A U B) = 0.65, then find P(B).

Solution:

A and B are mutually exclusive events, P(A n B) = 0.

P(not A) = 0.45

P(A) = 1 – P(not A)

P(A) = 1 – 0.45

P(A) = 0.55

P(A n B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(AUB)

0 = 0.55 + P(B) – 0.65

0.1 = P(B)

P(B) = 0.1

Question 2: The probability that at least one of A and B occur is 0.6. If A and B occur simultaneously with probability 0.2, then find P(A bar) + P(B bar).

Solution:

P(A or B) = P(A U B) = 0.6

P(A n B) = 0.2

P(A n B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A U B)

0.2 = P(A) + P(B) – 0.6

P(A) + P(B) = 0.2 + 0.6

P(A) + P(B) = 0.8

1 – P(not A) + 1 – P(not B) = 0.8

2 – 0.8 = P(not A) + P(not B)

P(not A) + P(not B) = 1.2

Question 3: The probability of happening of an event A is 0.5 and that of B is 0.3. If A and B are mutually exclusive events, then find the probability that neither A nor B happen

Solution:

P(A) = 0.5, P(B) = 0.3

P(A n B) = 0 (Since A and B are mutually exclusive events)

P(A bar n B bar)

P(A U B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A n B)

P(A U B) = 0.5 + 0.3 – 0

P(A U B) = 0.8

P[(AUB) whole bar] = 1 – P(A U B)

P[(AUB) whole bar] = 1 – 0.8

P[(AUB) whole bar] = 0.2
