## Maharashtra State Board Class 9 Maths Solutions Chapter 7 Statistics Practice Set 7.3

Question 1.

For class interval 20 – 25 write the lower class limit and the upper class limit.

Answer:

Lower class limit = 20

Upper class limit = 25

Question 2.

Find the class-mark of the class 35-40.

Solution:

Class-mark

∴ Class-mark of the class 35 – 40 is 37.5

Question 3.

If class-mark is 10 and class width is 6, then find the class.

Solution:

Let the upper class limit be x and the lower class limit be y.

Class mark = 10 …[Given]

Class-mark

∴ x + y = 20 …(i)

Class width = 6 … [Given]

Class width = Upper class limit – Lower class limit

∴ x – y = 6 …(ii)

Adding equations (i) and (ii),

x + y = 20

x – y = 6

2x = 26

∴ x = 13

Substituting x = 13 in equation (i),

13 + y = 20

∴ y = 20 – 13

∴ y = 7

∴ The required class is 7 – 13.

Question 4.

Complete the following table.

Solution:

Let frequency of the class 14 – 15 be x then, from table,

5 + 14 + x + 4 = 35

∴ 23 + x = 35

∴ x = 35 – 23

∴ x = 12

Question 5.

In a ‘tree plantation’ project of a certain school there are 45 students of ‘Harit Sena.’ The record of trees planted by each student is given below:

3, 5, 7, 6, 4, 3, 5, 4, 3, 5, 4, 7, 5, 3, 6, 6, 5, 3, 4, 5, 7, 3, 5, 6, 4, 4, 3, 5, 6, 6, 4, 3, 5 ,7, 3, 4, 5, 7, 6, 4, 3, 5, 4, 4, 7.

Prepare a frequency distribution table of the data.

Solution:

Question 6.

The value of n upto 50 decimal places is given below:

3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510

From this information prepare an ungrouped frequency distribution table of digits appearing after the decimal point.

Solution:

Question 7.

In the tables given below, class-mark and frequencies is given. Construct the frequency tables taking inclusive and exclusive classes.

i.

ii.

Solution:

i. Let the Lower class limit and upper class limit of the class mark 5 be x and y respectively.

∴x + y = 10

Here, class width = 15 – 5 = 10

But, Class width = Upper class limit – Lower class limit

∴ y – x = 10

∴ -x + y = 10 …(ii)

Adding equations (i) and (ii),

x+ y = 10

-x + y = 10

∴ 2y = 20

∴ y = 10

Substituting y = 10 in equation (i),

∴ x + 10 = 10

∴ x = 0

∴ class with class-mark 5 is 0 – 10

Similarly, we can find the remaining classes.

∴ frequency table taking inclusive and exclusive classes.

ii. Let the lower class limit and upper class limit of the class mark 22 be x andy respectively.

∴ x + y = 44 …(i)

Here, class width = 24 – 22 = 2

But, Class width = Upper class limit – Lower class limit

∴ y – x = 2

∴ -x + y = 2 …. (ii)

Adding equations (i) and (ii),

x + y = 44

– x + y= 2

2y = 46

∴ y = 23

Substituting y = 23 in equation (i),

∴ x + 23 = 44

∴ x = 21

∴ class with class-mark 22 is 21 – 23

Similarly, we can find the remaining classes

∴ frequency table taking inclusive and exclusive classes.

Question 8.

In a school, 46 students of 9th standard, were told to measure the lengths of the pencils in their compass-boxes in Centimetres. The data collected was as follows:

16, 15, 7, 4.5, 8.5, 5.5, 5, 6.5, 6, 10, 12, 13,

By taking exclusive classes 0-5, 5-10, 10-15,…. prepare a grouped frequency distribution table.

Solution:

Question 9.

In a village, the milk was collected from 50 milkmen at a collection center in litres as given below:

27, 75, 5, 99, 70, 12, 15, 20, 30, 35, 45, 80, 77,
