Solution :

 Marks20273443586589 Number of students246111287 Cumulativefrequency22 + 4  = 66 + 6  =  1211 + 12  =  2323 + 12  =  3535 + 8  =  4343 + 7  =  50

Here, the total frequency, N = ∑f = 50

N/2  =  50 / 2  =  25

The median is (N/2)th value = 25th value.

Now, 25th value occurs in the cumulative frequency 35, whose corresponding marks is 58.

So, the median = 58.

Problem 2 :

Find the median for the following data:

Solution :

Here, the total frequency, N = ∑f = 50

N/2  =  50 / 2  =  25

The median is (N/2)th value = 25th value.

Now, 25th value occurs in the cumulative frequency 25, whose corresponding marks is 3.

So, the median = 3.

Problem 3 :

The height (in cm) of 50 students in a particular class are given below:

 Height (in cm)156155154153152151150 Number of students846101237

Solution :

Here, the total frequency, N = ∑f = 50

N/2  =  50 / 2  =  25

The median is (N/2)th value = 25th value.

Now, 25th value occurs in the cumulative frequency 28, whose corresponding marks is 153.

So, the median = 153.

Problem 4 :

The hearts of 60 patients were examined through X-ray and the observations obtained are given below:

 Diameter of heart(in mm)130131132133134135 Number ofpatients791512611

Solution :

 Marks130131132133134135 Number of students791512611 Cumulativefrequency77 + 9  =  1616 + 15  =  3131 + 12  =  4343 + 6  =  4949 + 11  =  60

Here, the total frequency, N = ∑f = 60

N/2  =  60 / 2  =  30

The median is (N/2)th value = 30th value.

Now, 30th value occurs in the cumulative frequency 31, whose corresponding diameter of heart is 132.

So, the median = 132. Apart from the stuff given above, if you need any other stuff in math, please use our google custom search here.
