## RD Sharma Class 9 Solutions Chapter 22 Tabular Representation of Statistical Data

- The word ‘data’ means information. Its exact dictionary meaning is “given facts”.
- Statistical data are of two types
- Primary
- Secondary

- The number of times an observation occurs in the given data is called the frequency of the observation
- There are two types of frequency distribution:
- Discrete frequency distribution
- Continuous frequency distribution

- In a discrete frequency distribution the cumulative frequency of a particular value of the variable is the total of all the frequencies of the values of the variable which are less than or equal to the particular value.
- A table which displays the manner is which cumulative frequencies are distributed over various classes is called a cumulative frequency distribution or cumulative frequency table.

### RD Sharma Solutions Class 9 Chapter 22 Tabular Representation of Statistical Data Ex 22.1

Question 1.

What do you understand by the word ‘statistics’ in (i) singular form, (ii) plural forms.

Solution:

The word ‘statistics’ is used in both its singular as well as its plural senses.

In singular sense, statistics piay be defined as the science of collection, presentation, analysis and interpretation of numerical data.

In plural sense, statistics means numerical facts or observations collected with definite purpose.

For example, income and expenditure of persons in a particular locality, number of males and females in a particular town are statistics.

Question 2.

Describe some fundamental characteristics of statistics.

Solution:

Statistics in plural sense have the following characteristics:

(i) A single observation does not form statistics. Statistics are a sum total of observations.

(ii) Statistics are expressed quantitatively and not qualitatively.

(iii) Statistics are collected with a definite purpose.

(iv) Statistics in an experiment are comparable and can be classified into various groups.

Question 3.

What are (i) primary data? (ii) secondary data? Which of the two – the primary or the secondary data – is more reliable and why?

Solution:

(i) Primary data : When an investigator collects the data himself with a definite plan Or design in his mind, it is called primary data.

(ii) Secondary data : Data which are not originally collected rather obtained from the published or unpublished, sources are called secondary data.

Primary data are reliable and relevent because they are original in character and are collected by some individuals or by some institutions or by research bodies.

Question 4.

Why do we group data?

Solution:

When the number of observations is large, then arranging data in ascending or descending order is tedius job and it does not tell us much except minimum or maximum(s) of data. So, to make it easily understandable and clear, we tabulate data in the form of a table.

Question 5.

Explain the meaning of the following terms:

(i) variate

(ii) class intervals

(iii) class size

(iv) class mark

(v) frequency

(vi) class limits

(vii) true class limits.

Solution:

(i) Variate : The observations of a data are called variate.

(ii) Class intervals : When the presentations of data in classes, or groups, then groups are called classes or class intervals.

(iii) Class size : The difference between upper limit and lower limit is called class size.

(iv) Class mark : The mean of lower limit and upper limit is called class mark or mid value. Therefore class mark

=

(v) Frequency : The number of times an observation occurs in the given data, is called frequency of that observation.

(vi) Class limits : Every class has two limits : lower limit and upper limit.

(vii) True class limits : Whenever inclusive method is used, it is necessary tp make an adjustment to determine the correct class intervals, and to have continuity. If a-b is a class in inclusive method, then in order to change it into exclusive method, it becomes

a – – b + where h = [lower limit of a class – upper limit of previous class]

Question 6.

The ages of ten students of a group are given below. The ages have been recorded in years and months.

8-6, 9-0, 8-4, 9-3, 7-8, 8-11, 8-7, 9-2, 7¬10, 8-8

(i) What is the lowest age?

(ii) What is the highest age?

(iii) Determine the range?

Solution:

From the given data

(i) Lowest age is 7 years 8 months

(ii) The highest age is 9 years, 3 months

(iii) Range = Highest term – Lowest term

= 9 years 3 months – 7 years 8 months

= 1 years 7 months

Question 7.

₹45, ₹30, ₹40, ₹50, ₹25, ₹45

(i) What is the highest pocket money?

(ii) What is the lowest pocket money?

(iii) What is the range?

(iv) Arrange the amounts of pocket money in ascending order.

Solution:

From the given data

(i) Highest pocket money = ₹50

(ii) Lowest pocket money = ₹25

(iii) Range = Highest term – Lowest term = ₹50-₹25 = ₹25

(iv) In ascending order : ₹25, ₹30, ₹40, ₹45, ₹45, ₹50

Question 8.

Write the class-size in each of the following:

(i) 0-4,5-9,10-14

(ii) 10-19, 20-29, 30-39

(iii) 100-120, 120-140, 160-180

(iv) 0-0.25, 0.25-0.50, 0.50-0.75

(v) 5-5,01, 5.01-5.02, 5.02-5.03

Solution:

(i) In 0-4, 5-9, 10-14

0-4 means from 0 to 4, similarly 5-9 means 5 to 9 and 10-14 means 10 to 14

class-size is 5

(ii) In 10-19, 20-29, 30-39

Here 10-19, means 10 to 19, 20-29 means 20 to 29 and 30-39 means 30 to 39

Class-size = 10

(iii) 100-120, 120-140, 160-180

Here 100-120, 120-140, 160-180

Then 120 – 100 = 20, 140 – 120 = 20, 180 – 160 = 20 is class-size = 20

(iv) 0-0.25, 0.25-0.50, 0.50-0.75

Here 0.25 – 0 = 0.25, 0.50 – 0.25 = 0.25 and 0.75 – 0.50 = 0.25

∴ Class-size = 0.25

(v) 5-5.01, 5.01-5.02, 5.02-5.03

Here 5.01 – 5 = 0.01, 5.02 – 5.01 = 0.01 and 5.03 – 5.02 = 0.01

∴ Class-size = 0.01

(ii) Write the class-marks of each interval

Solution:

Class size = 25

First class is 200-224

∴ Number of class = 7

∴ Class interval will be

(i) 200-224, 225-249, 250-274, 275-299, 300-324, 325-349, 350-374

Solution:

(i) 104, 114, 124, 134, 144, 154 and 164

Here class size = 114 – 104 = 10

Here in first class, 104 –

= 104 – 5 = 99 and 104 + 5 = 109

∴ Class will be 99-109

In this way other classes will be 109-119, 119-129, 129-139, 139-149, 149-159, 159¬169

(ii) In 47, 52, 57, 62, 67, 72, 77, 82, 87, 92, 97, 102

Here class size = 52 – 47 = 5

∴ In first class, 47 – and 47 +

= 44.5-49.5

In this way other classes will be = 49.5-54.5, 54.5-59.5, 59.5-64.5, 64.5-69.5,69.5-74.5, 74.5-79.5, 79.5-84.5, 84.5-89.5, 89.5-94.5,94.5-99.5, 99.5-104.5 070 12.5, 17.5, 22.5, 27.5, 32.5, 37.5, 42.5, 47.5

Here class interval (size) = 17.5 – 12.5 = 5

In the class = 12.5 – , 12.5 +

⇒ 12.5 – 2.5, 12.5 + 2.5

⇒ 10, 15

∴ First class will be 10-15

In this way other classes 15-20, 20-25, 25-30, 30-35, 35-40, 40-45, 45-50

Question 8.

The width of each of nine classes in a frequency distribution is 2.5 and the lower class boundary of the lowest class 10.6. Then the upper class boundary of the highest class is

(a) 35.6

(b) 33.1

(c) 30.6

(d) 28.1

Solution:

Width of each class = 2.5

No. of classes = 9

Lower class boundary of the lowest class = 10.6

∴ Upper class limit of highest class = 10.6 + 9 x 2.5

= 10.6 + 22.5 = 33.1 (b)

Question 9.

The following marks were obtained by the students in a test:

81, 72, 90, 90, 86, 85, 92, 70, 71, 83, 89, 95, 85, 79, 62

The range of the marks is

(a) 9

(b) 17

(c) 27

(d) 33

Solution:

Marks are 81, 72, 90, 90, 86, 85, 92, 70, 71, 83, 89, 95, 85, 79, 62

Here highest marks = 95

and lowest marks = 62

∴ Range = highest marks – lowest marks = 95 – 62 = 33 (d)

Question 10.

Tallys are usually marked in a bunch of

(a) 3

(b) 4

(c) 5

(d) 6

Solution:

4 i.e. IIII (b)

Question 11.

Let l be the lower class limit of a class- interval in a frequency distribution and m be the mid-point of the class. Then, the upper class limit of the class is

Solution:

l is the lower class limit of a class interval

m is the mid point of the class

m =

⇒ 2m = u+ l ⇒ u = 2m – l

Then, upper class limit = 2 m – l (c)
