Question 1.

The following table shows the distribution of the heights of a group of factory workers.

(i) Determine the cumulative frequencies.

(ii) Draw the cumulative frequency curve on a graph paper.

Use 2 cm = 5 cm height on one axis and 2 cm = 10 workers on the other.

(iii) From your graph, write down the median height in cm.

Solution:

Question 2.

Using the data given below construct the cumulative frequency table and draw the-Ogive. From the ogive determine the median.

Solution:

Question 3.

Use graph paper for this question.

The following table shows the weights in gm of a sample of 100 potatoes taken from a large consignment:

(i) Calculate the cumulative frequencies.

(ii) Draw the cumulative frequency curve and from it determine the median weight of the potatoes. (1996)

Solution:

Question 4.

Attempt this question on graph paper.

(i) Construct the ‘less than’ cumulative frequency curve for the above data, using 2 cm = 10 years, on one axis and 2 cm = 10 casualties on the other.

(ii) From your graph determine (1) the median and (2) the upper quartile

Solution:

Question 5.

The weight of 50 workers is given below:

Draw an ogive of the given distribution using a graph sheet. Take 2 cm = 10 kg on one axis, and 2 cm = 5 workers along the other axis. Use a graph to estimate the following:

(i) the upper and lower quartiles.

(ii) if weighing 95 kg and above is considered overweight find the number of workers who are overweight. (2015)

Solution:

Question 6.

The table shows the distribution of scores obtained by 160 shooters in a shooting competition. Use a graph sheet and draw an ogive for the distribution.

(Take 2 cm = 10 scores on the x-axis and 2 cm = 20 shooters on the y-axis)

Use your graph to estimate the following:

(i) The median.

(ii) The interquartile range.

(iii) The number of shooters who obtained a score of more than 85%.

Solution:

Question 7.

The daily wages of 80 workers in a project are given below

Use a graph paper to draw an ogive for the above distribution.

(Use a scale of 2 cm = Rs 50 on x-axis and 2 cm = 10 workers on y-axis).

Use your ogive to estimate:

(i) the median wage of the workers.

(ii) the lower quartile wage of the workers.

(iii) the number of workers who earn more than Rs 625 daily. (2017)

Solution:

Draw an ogive for the given distribution taking 2 cm = 10 marks on one axis and 2 cm = 20 students on the other axis. Using the graph, determine

(i) The median marks.

(ii) The number of students who failed if minimum marks required to pass is 40.

(iii) If scoring 85 and more marks are considered as grade one, find the number of students who secured grade one in the examination.
