Q7. Fill in the blank:

Mode = (..................) − 2 (Mean)

Sol. Mode = 3 (median) − 2 (Mean)

Q8. What is the modal class of the following frequency distribution?

 

Classes

4


Sol. The Highest frequency 38 corresponds to 30−40.
∴ The modal class is 30–40.

Q9. Write the empirical relation between mean, mode and median.

Sol. The three measures i.e., mean, mode and median are connected by the following empirical relation:

Mode = 3 Median – 2 Mean

Q10. Write the median class of the following distribution:

 

Class

8 + 8 = 16

30-40

10

16 + 10 = 26

40-50

12

26 + 12 = 38

50-60

8

38 + 8 = 44

60-70

4

46 + 4 = 50

∵ 25 is cumulative frequency corresponding to the class 30−40.
∴ Median class is 30−40.

Q11. What is the modal class of the following frequency distribution?

 

Age (in years)

0 -10

10 - 20

20 - 30

30 - 40

40 - 50

50 - 60

Number of Patients

16

11

27

18

 

Sol. Here, the maximum class frequency is 27 and the class corresponding to this frequency is 40−50.
∴ The modal class is 40−50.

Q12. Find the median class of the following data:

 

Marks

0 -10

10 - 20

20 - 30

30 - 40

40 - 50

50 - 60

30 + 22 = 52

40-50

30

52 + 30 = 82

50-60

18

82 + 18 = 100

 

Here,  Class 10 Maths Chapter 13 Question Answers - Statistics

∴ The median class is 30−40

FAQs on Class 10 Maths Chapter 13 Question Answers - Statistics

1. What is statistics?
Statistics is a branch of mathematics that deals with the collection, analysis, interpretation, presentation, and organization of data. It involves the study of data patterns, trends, and probabilities to make informed decisions or draw conclusions about a population based on a sample.
2. What are the different types of data?
There are two main types of data: qualitative and quantitative. Qualitative data refers to non-numerical information, such as categories or labels, while quantitative data consists of numerical values. Quantitative data can further be categorized as discrete or continuous, depending on whether it can take on only specific values or any value within a range, respectively.
3. What is the importance of statistics in everyday life?
Statistics plays a crucial role in various aspects of everyday life. It helps in making informed decisions, understanding trends and patterns, evaluating risks, predicting future outcomes, and solving real-world problems. From analyzing market trends to determining the effectiveness of medical treatments, statistics provides valuable insights and helps us make evidence-based choices.
4. What is the difference between a population and a sample?
In statistics, a population refers to the entire set of individuals, objects, or events that we are interested in studying. On the other hand, a sample is a smaller subset of the population that is selected to represent the whole. Collecting data from a sample is often more feasible and cost-effective than studying the entire population. By analyzing the sample, we can make inferences about the population.
5. How do we measure central tendency in statistics?
Central tendency measures are used to describe the central or typical value of a data set. The three commonly used measures of central tendency are the mean, median, and mode. The mean is calculated by summing all the values and dividing by the total number of data points. The median is the middle value when the data is arranged in ascending or descending order. The mode is the value that appears most frequently in the data set.
