**Solution:**

Let us take the assumed mean (A) = 37.5

∴ The mean of the production of oranges is ₹ 35310.

**Question 5.A frequency distribution of funds collected by 120 workers in a company for the drought affected people are given in the following table. Find the mean of he funds by ‘step deviation’ method.**

**Solution:**

Here, we take A = 1250 and g = 500

∴ The mean of the funds collected is ₹ 987.5.

**Question 6.The following table gives the information of frequency distribution of weekly wages of 150 workers of a company. Find the mean of the weekly wages by ‘step deviation’ method.**

**Solution:**

∴ The mean of investments in health insurance is ₹ 2140.

Assumed mean method:

**Question 3.The following table shows the funds collected by 50 students for flood affected people. Find the mean of the funds.**

If the number of scores in two consecutive classes is very low, it is convenient to club them. So, in the above example, we club the classes 0 – 500, 500 – 1000 and 2000 – 2500, 2500 – 3000. Now the new table is as follows

i. Solve by direct method.

ii. Verily that the mean calculated by assumed mean method is the same.

**Solution:**

i. Direct method:

∴ The mean of the funds is ₹ 1390.

ii. Assumed mean method:

Here, A = 1250

∴ The mean calculated by assumed mean method is the same.

iii. Step deviation method:

Here, we take A = 1750 and g = 250

∴ The mean of the funds is ₹ 1390.

#### Practice Set 6.2

**Question 1.The following table shows classification of number of workers and the number of hours they work in a software company. Find the median of the number of hours they work.**

**Solution:**

Cumulative frequency which is just greater than (or equal) to 500 is 650.

∴ The median class is 10 – 12.

Now, L = 10, f = 500, cf = 150, h = 2

∴ The median of the number of hours the workers work is 11.4 hours.

**Question 2.The frequency distribution table shows the number of mango trees in a grove and their yield of mangoes. Find the median of data.**

**Solution:**

Here, total frequency = ∑f

_{i}= N = 250

∴ N2 = 2502 = 125

Cumulative frequency which is just greater than (or equal) to 125 is 153.

∴ The median class is 150 – 200.

Now, L = 150, f = 90, cf = 63, h = 50

∴ The median of the given data is 184 mangoes (approx).

**Question 3.The following table shows the classification of number of vehicles and their speeds on Mumbai-Pune express way. Find the median of the data.**

**Solution:**

Here, total frequency = ∑f

_{i}= N = 200

∴ N2 = 2002 = 100

Cumulative frequency which is just greater than (or equal) to 100 is 184.

∴ The median class is 74.5 – 79.5.

Now, L = 74.5, f = 85, cf = 99, h = 5

∴ The median of the given data is 75 km/hr (approx.).

**Question 4.The production of electric bulbs in different factories is shown in the following table. Find the median of the productions.**

**Solution:**

Cumulative frequency which is just greater than (or equal) to 52.5 is 67.

∴ The median class is 50 – 60.

Now, L = 50, f = 20, cf = 47, h = 10

∴ The median of the productions is 52750 bulbs (approx.).

**Question 1.If the number of scores is odd, then the (n+12) ^{th} score is the median of the data. That is, the number of scores below as well as above Kn+12 is n−12 Verify the fact by taking n = 2m + I. (Textbk pg. no. 139)Solution:**

The sequence of the terms of scores is 1,2, 3, …….., m, m + 1, m + 2, …, 2m + 1

Thus, we have to prove that m + 1 is the middle term if the number of scores is 2m + 1

i.e. to prove

number of terms from 1 to m = number of terms from m + 2 to 2m + 1 …(i)

Consider the L.H.S. of equation (i)

The sequence is an A.P. with a = 1,d = 1, t

_{n1}= m

t

_{n1}= a + (n

_{1}– 1) d

∴ m = 1 + (n

_{1}– 1)1

∴ m = 1 + n

_{1}– 1

∴ m = n

_{1}

Consider the R.H.S. of equation (ii)

The sequence is an A.P. with a = m + 2, d = 1, t

_{n2}= 2m + 1

t

_{n2}= a + (n

_{2}– 1)d

∴ 2m + 1 = m + 2 + (n

_{2}– 1)1

∴ 2m + 1 = m + n

_{2}+ 1

∴ m = n

_{2}

∴ number of terms from 1 to m = number of terms from m + 2 to 2m + 1 = m = n−12

∴ m + 1 is the middle term if the number of scores is 2m + 1.

**Question 2.If the number of the scores is even, then the mean of the middle two terms is the median. This is because the number of terms below Kn2 and above Kn+22 is equal, which is n−22. Verify this by taking n = 2m. (Textbook pg. no. 139)Solution:**

The sequence of the terms of scores is 1, 2, 3 … m – 1, m, m + 1, m + 2,…., 2m

Thus, we have to prove that m and m + 1 are the middlemost terms if the number of scores is 2m.

i.e. to prove

number of terms from 1 to m – 1 = number of terms from m + 2 to 2m …(i)

Consider the L.H.S. of equation (i)

The sequence is an A.P. with a = 1, d = 1, t

_{n1}= m – 1

t

_{n1}= a + (n

_{1}– 1)d

∴ m – 1 = 1 + (n

_{1}– 1)1

∴m – 1 = 1 + n

_{1}– 1

∴ n

_{1}= m – 1

Consider the R.H.S. of equation (i)

The sequence is an A.P. with a = m + 2, d = 1, t

_{n2}= 2m

t

_{n2}= a + (n

_{2}– 1) d

∴ 2m = m + 2 + (n

_{2}– 1)1

∴ 2m = m + 2 + n

_{2}– 1

∴ n

_{2}= m – 1

∴ number of terms from 1 to m – 1 = number of terms from m + 2 to 2m = m – 1 = n−22

∴ m and m + 1 are the middlemost terms if the number of scores is 2m.

#### Practice Set 6.3

**Solution:**

Here, the maximum frequency is 80.

∴ The modal class is 4 – 5.

L = lower class limit of the modal class = 4

h = class interval of the modal class = 1

f

_{1}= frequency of the modal class = 80

f

_{0}= frequency of the class preceding the modal class = 70

f

_{2}= frequency of the class succeeding the modal class = 60

∴ The mode of the fat content is 4.33%.

**Question 2.Electricity used by some families is shown in the following table. Find the mode of use of electricity.**

**Solution:**

Here, the maximum frequency is 100.

∴ The modal class is 60 – 80.

L = lower class limit of the modal class = 60

h = class interval of the modal class = 20

f

_{1}= frequency of the modal class = 100

f

_{0}= frequency of the class preceding the modal class = 70

f

_{2}= frequency of the class succeeding the modal class = 80

∴ The mode of use of electricity is 72 units.

**Question 3.Grouped frequency distribution of supply of milk to hotels and the number of hotels is given in the following table. Find the mode of the supply of milk.Solution:**

Here, the maximum frequency is 35.

∴ The modal class is 9 – 11.

L = lower class limit of the modal class = 9

h = class interval of the modal class = 2

f

_{1}= frequency of the modal class = 35

f

_{0}= frequency of the class preceding the modal class = 20

f

_{2}= frequency of the class succeeding the modal class = 18

∴ The mode of the supply of milk is 9.94 litres (approx.).

**Question 4.The following frequency distribution table gives the ages of 200 patients treated in a hospital in a week. Find the mode of ages of the patients.**

**Solution:**

Here, the maximum frequency is 50.

The modal class is 9.5 – 14.5.

L = lower class limit of the modal class = 9.5

h = class interval of the modal class = 5

f

_{1}= frequency of the modal class = 50

f

_{0}= frequency of the class preceding the modal class = 32

f

_{2}= frequency of the class succeeding the modal class = 36

∴ The mode of the ages of the patients is 12.31 years (approx.).
