Other Exercises

Question 1.
Find the mode of the following data:
(i) 7,9,8,7,7,6,8,10,7 and 6
(ii) 9,11,8,11,16,9,11,5,3,11,17 and 8
Solution:
(i) Mode = 7
because it occurs 4 times
(ii) Mode =11
because it occurs 4 times

Question 2.
The following table shows the frequency distribution of heights of 50 boys:

Find the mode of heights.
Solution:
Mode is 122 because it occurs maximum times i.e its., frequency is 18.

Question 3.
Find the mode of following data, using a histogram:

Solution:
Mode class = 20 – 30
Mode = 24

We see in the histogram that line AD and CB intersect at P. Draw perpendicular Q to the horizontal x-axis. Which is the value of the mode = 24

Question 4.
The following table shows the expenditure of 60 boys on books. Find the mode of their expenditure:

Solution:
Model class is = 30 – 35
and Mode = 34

We see in the histogram that line AD and CB intersect at P. Draw perpendicular Q to the horizontal axis. Which is the value of the mode.

Question 5.
Find the median and mode for the set of numbers 2,2,3,5,5,5,6,8 and 9.
Solution:
Median = $$\frac { 9 +1 }{ 2 }$$ = 5th term which is 5
Mode = 5, because it occurs in maximum times.

Question 6.
A boy scored following marks in various class tests during a term, each test being marked out of 20.
15,17,16,7,10,12,14,16,19,12,16.
(i) What are his modal marks ?
(ii) What are his median marks ?
(iii) What are his total marks ?
(iv) What are his mean marks ?
Solution:
Arranging the given data in ascending order : 7, 10,12, 12,14, 15,16,16, 16, 17,19.
(i) Mode = 16 as it occurs in maximum times.
(ii) Median= $$\frac { 11 +1 }{ 2 }$$ = 6th term which is 15
(iii) Total marks = 7 + 10+ 12+ 12+ 14+ 15+ 16 + 16+ 16+ 17+ 19= 154

Question 7.
Find the mean, median and mode of the following marks obtained by 16 students in a class test marked out of 10 marks.
0,0,2,2,3,3,3,4,5,5,5,5,6, 6,7,8
Solution:

(ii) Median = Mean of 8th and 9th term
= $$\frac { 4 +5 }{ 2 }$$ = $$\frac { 9 }{ 2 }$$ = 4.5
(iii) Mode = 5 as it occurs in maximum times.

Question 8.
At a shooting competition the score of a com-petitor were as given below :

(i) What was his modal score ?
(ii) What was his median score ?
(iii) What was his total score ?
(iv) What was his mean score ?
Solution:

(i) Modal score =4 as its frequency is 7, the maximum.
