Question 1: In a Mathematics test, the following marks were obtained by 40 students. Arrange these marks in a table using tally marks.
a) Find how many students obtained marks equal to or more than 7.
b) How many students obtained marks below 4?

a)
Students who got 7 marks = 5
Students who got 8 marks = 4
Students who got 9 marks = 3

= Students who obtained marks equal to or more than 7 = Students who got 7 marks + Students who got 8 marks + Students who got 9 marks
= 5 + 4 + 3
= 12

Therefore, 12 students got marks equal to or more than 7.

b)
Students who got 3 marks = 3
Students who got 2 marks = 3
Students who got 1 marks = 2

= Students who obtained marks less than 4 = Students who got 3 marks + Students who got 2 marks + Students who got 1 marks
= 3 + 3 + 2
= 8

Therefore, 8 students got marks less than 4.

= 6 + 5 + 8 + 3 + 6 = 28
Therefore, the total number of tractors in all the five villages is 28.
