## Exercise 14.2

1. The following table shows the ages of the patients admitted in a hospital during a year.

 Age (in years) Number of patients 5-15 15-25 25-35 35-45 45-55 55-65 6 11 21 23 14 5

Find the mode and the mean of the data given above. Compare and interpret the two measures of central tendency.

Solution: Solution: Modal class = 35 – 45, l = 35, h = 10, f_1 = 23, f_0 = 21 and f_2 = 14

Mode =l+((f_1-f_0)/(2f_1-f_0-f_2))xxh

=35+(23-21)/(2xx23-21-14)xx10

=35+2/11xx10=36.8

Σ fi = 80Σ fixi = 2830

x=(Σf_i\x_i)/(Σf_i)=(2830)/(80)=35.37

The mode of the data shows that maximum number of patients is in the age group of 26.8, while average age of all the patients is 35.37.

2. The following data gives the information on the observed lifetime (in hours) of 225 electrical components:

 Lifetime (in hours) Frequency 0-20 20-40 40-60 60-80 80-100 100-120 10 35 52 61 38 29

Determine the modal lifetimes of the components.

Solution: Modal class = 60-80, l = 60, f_1 = 61, f_0 = 52, f_2 = 38 and h = 20

Mode =l+((f_1-f_0)/(2f_1-f_0-f_2))xxh

=60+(61-52)/(2xx61-52-38)xx20

=60+9/32xx20=65.62

3. The following data gives the distribution of total monthly household expenditure of 200 families of a village. Find the modal monthly expenditure of the families. Also, find the mean monthly expenditure.

ExpenditureNumber of families
1000-150024
1500-200040
2000-250033
2500-300028
3000-350030
3500-400022
4000-450016
4500-50007

Solution: Modal class = 1500-2000, l = 1500, f_1 = 40, f_0 = 24, f_2 = 33 and h = 500

Mode =l+((f_1-f_0)/(2f_1-f_0-f_2))xxh

=1500+(40-24)/(2xx40-24-33)xx500

=1500+16/23xx500=1847.82

4. The following distribution gives the state-wise teacher-student ratio in higher secondary schools of India. Find the mode and mean of this data. Interpret the two measures.

Number of students per teacherNumber of states/UT
15-203
20-258
25-309
30-3510
35-403
40-450

Solution: Modal class = 30-35, l = 30, f_1 = 10, f_0 = 9, f_2 = 3 and h = 5

Mode =l+((f_1-f_0)/(2f_1-f_0-f_2))xxh

The mode shows that maximum number of states has 30-35 students per teacher. The mean shows that average ratio of students per teacher is 29.22

5. The given distribution shows the number of runs scored by some top batsmen of the world in one-day international cricket matches.

Runs scoredNumber of batsmen
