Chapter 14 Statistics Exercise 14.2

Question 1: The blood groups of 30 students of Class VIII are recorded as follows:
A, B, O, O, AB, O, A, O, B, A, O, B, A, O, O, A, AB, O, A, A, O, O, AB, B, A, O, B, A, B, O.

Represent this data in the form of a frequency distribution table. Which is the most common, and which is the rarest, blood group among these students?
Answer:

Blood group O is the most common and blood group AB is the rarest among the students.

Construct a grouped frequency distribution table with class size 5 for the data given above taking the first interval as 0-5 (5 not included). What main features do you observe from this tabular representation?
Answer:

From the above table we observe that:
• Frequencies of class intervals 5 - 10 and 10 - 15 are equal, i.e., 11 each. It shows that maximum number of engineers have their residences at 5 to 15 km away from their work place.
• Frequencies of class intervals 20 - 25 and 25 - 30 are also equal, i.e., 1 each. It shows that minimum number of engineers have their residences at 20 to 30 km away from their work place.

Question 3: The relative humidity (in %) of a certain city for a month of 30 days was as follows:

98.1

98.6

99.2

90.3

(i) Construct a grouped frequency distribution table with classes 84 - 86, 86 - 88, etc.
(ii) Which month or season do you think this data is about?
(iii) What is the range of this data?
Answer
:

ii) Since, the relative humidity is high, so, the data appears to be taken during the rainy season.
iii) Range = Highest observation - Lowest observation
     Range = 99.2 – 84.9
                  = 14.3

Question 4: The heights of 50 students, measured to the nearest centimetres, have been found to be as follows:

161

150

(i) Represent the data given above by a grouped frequency distribution table, taking the class intervals as 160 - 165, 165 - 170, etc.
(ii) What can you conclude about their heights from the table?
Answer:

i) As the lowest observation is 150 therefore we will start the class intervals with 150 i.e. 150 - 155.
As the highest observation is 173 therefore we will end the class intervals with 175 i.e. 170 - 175.

ii) From the frequency distribution table, we can conclude that more than 50% of the students are shorter than 165 cm.

Question 5: A study was conducted to find out the concentration of sulphur dioxide in the air in parts per million (ppm) of a certain city. The data obtained for 30 days is as follows:

(i) Make a grouped frequency distribution table for this data with class intervals as 0.00 - 0.04, 0.04 - 0.08, and so on.
(ii) For how many days, was the concentration of sulphur dioxide more than 0.11 parts per million?
Answer:

i)


ii) The concentration of sulphur dioxide was more than 0.11 ppm for 8 days.

3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510

(i) Make a frequency distribution of the digits from 0 to 9 after the decimal point.
(ii) What are the most and the least frequently occurring digits?
Answer:

i)
ii) The most frequently occurring digits are 3 and 9 while 0 is the least frequently occurring digit.
