Exercise 14.1

1. A survey was conducted by a group of students as a part of their environment awareness programme, in which they collected the following data regarding the number of plants in 20 houses in a locality. Find the mean number of plants per house.

Which method did you use for finding the mean, and why?
Solution:

Mean can be calculated as follows: In this case, the values of fi and xi are small hence direct method has been used.

2. Consider the following distribution of daily wages of 50 workers of a factory.

Find the mean daily wages of the workers of the factory by using an appropriate method.

Solution: In this case, value of xi is quite large and hence we should select the assumed mean method.

Let us take assumed mean a = 150

Now, mean of deviations can be calculated as follows: Mean can be calculated as follows:

x = d + a = -4.8 + 150 = 145.20

3. The following distribution shows the daily pocket allowance of children of a locality. The mean pocket allowance is Rs. 18. Find the missing frequency f.

Solution:

We have; 4. Thirty women were examined in a hospital by a doctor and the number of heart beats per minute were recorded and summarized as follows. Find the mean heart beats per minute for these women, choosing a suitable method.

Solution:

Find the mean number of mangoes kept in a packing box. Which method of finding the mean did you choose?

Solution:

Mean can be calculated as follows: In this case, there are wide variations in fi and hence assumed mean method is used.

6. The table below shows the daily expenditure on food of 25 households in a locality.
