    The weights in group of 50 oranges picked at random from a consignment are as follows: 131, 113, 82, 75, 204, 81, 84,1 18, 104, 110, 80, 107, 111, 114, 136, 123, 90, 78, 90, 115, 110, 98, 106, 99, 107, 84, 76, 186, 100, 109, 128, 115, 107, 115, 119, 93, 187, 139, 129, 130, 68, 195,123, 125, 111, 92, 86, 70, 126. Form the grouped frequency table by dividing the variable range into intervals of equal width, each corresponding to 20gms in such a way that the mid-value of the first class corresponding to 70gms.

    Marks:3
    Answer:

    We have,
    Size of each class = 20
    Mid-value of first class = 70
    We know that if “a” is the mid-value of a class and h is the class size, then the lower and upper limits of the class are (a – h/2) and (a + h/2) respectively.
    Here, a = 70 and h = 20
    So, the lower limit of the first class interval = 70 – 10
    = 60
    And, the upper limit of the first class interval= 70 + 10
    = 80
    So, first class interval is 60-80

  • Q3

    The class-marks of a distribution are 26,31,36,41,46,51,56,61,66,71 find the true class limits.

    Marks:3
    Answer:

    Class size = difference between any two consecutive class marks
    = 31 – 26
    = 5
    Lower class limit = 26 – 5/2
    = 23.5
    Upper Class limit = 26+5/2
    = 28.5
    These are the true class limits for 26.
    Similarly we can calculate for others
