**NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 3 Data Handling Exercise 3.1 **Question 1.

Find the range of heights of any ten students of your class.

Solution:

Let us have the heights of 10 students are as follows:

140 cm, 141.5 cm, 138 cm, 150 cm, 161 cm,

138 cm, 140.5 cm, 135.5 cm, 160 cm, 158 cm

Here, minimum height = 135.5 cm

Maximum height =161 cm

∴ Range = Maximum height – Minimum height

= 161 cm — 135.5 cm = 25.5 cm

Hence, the required range = 25.5 cm.

Question 2.

Organise the following marks in a class assessment in a tabular form.

4, 6, 7, 5, 3, 5, 4, 5, 2, 6, 2, 5, 1, 9, 6, 5, 8, 4, 6, 7

(i) Which number is the highest?

(ii) Which number is the lowest?

(iii) What is the range of the data?

(iv) Find the arithmetic mean.

Solution:

Let us form a frequency distribution table:

(i) 9 is the highest marks.

(ii) 1 is the lowest marks.

(iii) Range = Max. marks – Min. marks

= 9 – 1 = 8

(iv) Arithmetic mean =

Question 3.

Find the mean of first five whole numbers.

Solution:

First 5 whole numbers are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4

∴ Mean

Hence, the required mean = 2.

Question 4.

A cricketer scores the following runs in eight innings:

58, 76, 40, 35, 46, 45, 0, 100

Find the mean score.

Solution:

Following are the scores of the runs in eight innings:

58, 76, 40, 35, 46, 45, 0, 100

∴ Mean =

Hence, the required mean = 50.

Question 5.

Following table shows the points of each player scored in four games:

Player | Game 1 | Game 2 | Game 3 | Game 4 |

A | 14 | 16 | 10 | 10 |

B | 0 | 8 | 6 | 4 |

C | 8 | 11 | Did not play | 13 |

Now answer the following questions:

(i) Find the mean to determine A’s average number of points scored per game.

(ii) To find the mean number of points per game for C, would you divide the total points by 3 or by 4? Why?

(iii) B played in all the four games. How would you find the mean?

(iv) Who is the best performer?

Solution:

(i) Number of points scored by A in all games are

Game 1 – 14, Game 2 = 16, Game 3 = 10, Game 4 = 10

∴ Average score =

(ii) Since, C did not play Game 3, he played only 3 games. So, the total will be divided by 3.

(iii) Number of points scored by B in all the games are Game 1 = 0, Game 2 = 8, Game 3 = 6, Game 4 = 4

∴ Average score =

(iv) Mean score of C

Mean score of C = 10.67

While mean score of A = 12.5

Clearly, A is the best performer.

Question 6.

The marks (out of 100) obtained by a group of students in a science test are 85, 76, 90, 85, 39, 48, 56, 95, 81 and 75. Find the

(i) highest and the lowest marks obtained by the students.

(ii) range of the marks obtained.

(iii) mean marks obtained by the group.

Solution:

Marks obtained are:

85, 76, 90, 85, 39, 48, 56, 95, 81 and 75

(i) Highest marks = 95

Lowest marks = 39

(ii) Range of the marks

= Highest marks – Lowest marks

= 95 – 39 = 56

(iii) Mean marks

Question 7.

The enrolment in a school during six consecutive years was as follows:

1555, 1670, 1750, 2013, 2540, 2820

Find the mean enrolment of the school for this period.

Solution:

Mean enrolment

Thus, the required mean = 2058.

Question 8.

The rainfall (in mm) in a city on 7 days of a certain week was recorded as follows:

Day | Rainfall (in mm) |

Monday | 0.0 |

Tuesday | 12.2 |

Wednesday | 2.1 |

Thursday | 0.0 |

Friday | 20.5 |

Saturday | 5.5 |

Sunday | 1.0 |

(i) Find the range of the rainfall in the above data.

(ii) Find the mean rainfall for the week.

(iii) On how many days was the rainfall less than the mean rainfall?

Solution:

(i) Maximum rainfall = 20.5 mm

Minimum rainfall = 0.0 mm

∴ Range = Maximum rainfall – Minimum rainfall

= 20.5 mm – 0.0 mm = 20.5 mm

(ii) Mean rainfall

(iii) Number of days on which the rainfall was less than the mean rainfall = Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday = 5 days.

Question 9.

The heights of 10 girls were measured in cm and the results are as follows:

135, 150, 139, 128, 151, 132, 146, 149, 143, 141

(i) What is the height of the tallest girl?

(ii) What is the height of the shortest girl?

(Hi) What is the range of the data?

(iv) What is the mean height of the girls?

(v) How many girls have heights more than the mean height?

Solution:

(i) Height of the tallest girl = 151 cm.

(ii) Height of the shortest girl = 128 cm.

(iii) Range = Height of tallest girl – Height of the shortest girl

= 151 cm – 128 cm = 23 cm.

(v) Number of girls having more height than the mean height

= 150, 151, 146, 149 and 143 = 5 girls
