# The number of children in 20 families of a locality are:

2, 2, 3, 1, 1, 2, 3, 2, 2, 1, 2, 2, 3, 1, 2, 1, 1, 3, 2, 2

State the frequency of each observation.

Expert Answer:

### Arranging the data in ascending order, we get:

1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3

We find that:

1 occurs 6 times

2 occurs 10 times

3 occurs 4 times

Therefore,

The frequency of families having 1 child is 6

The frequency of families having 2 children is 10

The frequency of families having 3 children is 4

- The daily earnings (in rupees) of 24 stores in a market was recorded as under: 715, 650, 685, 550, 573, 530, 610, 525, 742, 680, 736, 524, 500, 585, 723, 545, 532, 560, 580, 545, 625, 630, 645, 700 Prepare a continuous grouped frequency table taking equal class sizes.
- Given below are the heights ( in cm) of 11 boys of a class: 146, 143, 148, 132, 128, 139, 140, 152, 154, 142, 149. Arrange the above data in ascending order and find: (i) The height of the tallest boy. (ii) The height of the shortest boy. (iii) The range of the given data.
- (1) Which blood group has the most donors? (2) How many donors are of the ‘O’ blood group?
- The heights of 25 students, measured to the nearest centimeters have been found to be as follows: Represent the above data by a grouped frequency distribution table using tally marks.
- Given below is the distribution of marks scored by some students in an examination: Marks 50-60 60-70 70-80 80-90 90-100 Number of students 10 9 6 3 2 (1) What is the class size? (2) What is the upper limit of the class interval 80-90? (3) The results of how many students are recorded here?
