**Mriganka has written the ages of 30 workers of their factory:**

Age (Year) |
21-23 |
23-25 |
25-27 |
27-29 |
29-31 |
31-33 |
33-35 |

No. of Workers |
3 |
4 |
5 |

I prepare a cumulative frequency distribution table from the above data and from there, I find out the answers of the following question:

(i) Let me write the number of workers in the factory whose ages are less than 27 years.

(ii) Let me write the number of workers whose ages are 25 years or more than 25 years.

(iii) Let me write the ages of the workers whose ages are 25 years or more than 25 years but less than 33 years.

* Solution:* At first, I prepare the cumulative frequency distribution table.

Class Boundary (Age Year) |
Less than type cumulative frequency |

Less than 21 | 0 |

Less than 23 | 3 |

Less than 25 | 7 |

Less than 27 | 12 |

Less than 29 | 18 |

Less than 31 | 23 |

Less than 33 | 27 |

(i) No. of workers in the factory whose ages are less than 27 years = 12

(ii) No. of workers in the factory whose ages are more than 25 = 23

(iii) No. of workers in the factory whose ages are 25 years or more than 25 years but less than 33 years = 23 – 3 = 20

**(i) Which one of the following is a graphical (Pictorial) representation of a statistical data?**

**(a) Line graph**

**(b) Raw Data**

**(c) Cumulative frequency**

**(d) Frequency**

** Solution:** (a) Line graph.

**(ii) The range of the data 12, 25, 15, 18, 17, 20, 22, 26, 16, 11, 8, 19, 10, 30, 20, 32 is**

**(a) 10**

**(b) 15**

**(c) 18**

**(d) 26**

* Solution:* Range = Max – Min

= 32 – 6 = 26

\therefore \quad (d) is correct option

**(iii) The class size of the classes 1 – 5, 6 – 10 is**

**(a) 4**

**(b) 5**

**(c) 4.5**

**(d) 5.5**

* Solution:* (a) is correct option

**(iv) In a frequency distribution table, the mid-points of the classes are 15, 20, 25, 30 respectively. The class having mid-point as 20 is**

**(a) 12.5 – 17.5**

**(b) 17.5 – 22.5**

**(c) 18.5 – 21.5**

**(d) 19.5 – 20.5**

* Solution:* (b) is correct option.

**(v) In a frequency distribution table, the mid-point of a class is 10 and the class size of each class is 6; the lower limit of the class is**

**(a) 6**

**(b) 7**

**(c) 8**

**(d) 12**

* Solution:* Let lower limit of the class = a. Upper limit of the class = b

\therefore \quad b-a=6 \\

b = 6 + a and \frac{a+b}{2}=10\\

or, a+b=20\\

or, a+6+a=20 \quad[\because b=6+a]\\

or, 2 a=20-6 \\

or, 2 \mathrm{a}=14 \\

\therefore a = 14

\therefore (b) is correct option.

**9. Short answer type questions:**

**(a) In a continuous frequency distribution table if the mid-point of a class is m and the upper class- boundary is u, then let us find out the lower class-boundary.**

* Solution:* We have,

\text { Mid point }\text { of a class } = \frac{lower class boundary + upper class boundary }{2}

or, = \frac{lower class boundary + u }{2} = m

\therefore lower class boundary + u = 2

\therefore lower class boundary = 2m – u

**(b) In a continuous frequency distribution table, if the mid-point of a class is 42 and class size is 10, then let write the upper and lower limit of the class.**

* Solution:* Let lower limit of the class = a

Upper limit of the class =b

We have,\frac{a+b}{2}=42

and b – a = 10, or, b = 10 + a

\therefore \quad a + b = 84

\text { or, } a+10+a=84 \quad[\because b=10+a] \\

\text { or, } 2 a=84-10 \\

\text { or, } 2 a=74

\therefore a = 37

\therefore \quad b =10+a \\

=10+37 \quad=47 \\

\therefore \quad \text { lower limit of the class }=37 \\

\text { Upper limit of the class }=47

\therefore \quad lower limit of the class = 37

Upper limit of the class =47

Let us write the frequency density, of the first class of the above frequency distribution table.

*Solution: *

We have,

\text { Frequency density } =\frac{\text { Class frequency }}{\text { Class }- \text { size }} \\

=\frac{3}{74-70} \\

=\frac{3}{4}

= 0.75 (Ans.)

**(d) Let us write the frequency density of the last class of the question (c)**

**Solution:**

\text { Frequency density } =\frac{8}{89-85} \\

=\frac{8}{4}=2 \text { (Ans.) }\\

**(e) Let us write from the following examples which one indicates attribute and which one indicates variable.**

(i) Population of the family

(ii) Daily temperature

(iii) Education value

(iv) Monthly income.

(v) Grade obtained in Madhyamik Examination.
