Solution:
QUESTION: 24

What is the coefficient of range for the following distribution? Solution:
QUESTION: 25

If the range of x is 2, what would be the range of –3x +50?

Solution:

Substituing x=2 in -3x+50
-3x+50=-3(2)+50
=-6+50
=44
Thus the range of -3x+50 is 44

Solution:
QUESTION: 29

If the relation between x and y is 5y–3x = 10 and the mean deviation about mean for x is 12, then the mean deviation of y about mean is

Solution:

5y-3x=10
x=12
5y-3×12=10
5y-36=10
5y=46
y=46/5
y=9.2

QUESTION: 30

Solution:
QUESTION: 34

What is the coefficient of variation of the following numbers?

53, 52, 61, 60, 64.

Solution:

The coefficient of variation of the following numbers  53,52,61,60,64​ are,
Step 1:
To find the mean of the above numbers,
x = 53+52+61+60+64 / 5 = 290/5 = 58
Step 2:
To find Standard deviation.,
S = √53² +52²+61²+60²+64² / 5  - (58²)
=√16390/5 -3364   = √3386-3364
=√22  = 4.69
Step 3 :
To find Coefficient of variation,
Coefficient of variation ( C. V) = ( S / X ) * 100
= ( 4.69 /58 ) * 100  = 0.0809 * 100
⇒8.09
