Question 1.

The mean value can be calculated from both ungrouped and grouped data. Which one do you think is more accurate? Why? (Page No. 327) (AS_{2}. AS_{3})

Solution:

Mean calculated from ungrouped data is more accurate than, mean calculated from the grouped data. Since its calculation takes the observations in the data into consideration.

Question 2.

When it Is more convenient to use grouped data for analysis? (AS_{3}) (Page No. 327)

Solution:

Grouped data is convenient when the values of f_{i} and x_{i} are low.

Question 3.

Is the result obtained by all the three methods the same? (AS_{3}) (Page No. 331)

Solution:

Yes, mean obtained by all the three methods is same.

Question 4.

If x_{i} and f_{i} are sufficiently small, then which method is an appropriate choice? (AS_{3}) (Page No. 331)

Solution:

Direct method.

Question 5.

If x_{i} and f_{i} are numerically large numbers then which methods are appropriate to use? (AS_{3}) (Page No. 331)

Solution:

Assumed mean method and step deviation method.

Question 1.

Find the mode of the following data. (AS_{1}) (Page No. 334)

a) 5, 6, 9, 10, 6, 12, 3, 6, 11, 10, 4, 6, 7

Solution:

Mode : 6 (Most repeated value of the data)

b) 20, 3, 7, 13, 3, 4, 6, 7, 19, 15, 7, 18, 3

Solution:

Mode : 3, 7 (Most repeated values)

c) 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6

Solution:

Mode : 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 (Most repeated values)

Question 2.

Is the mode always at the center of the data ? (AS_{3}) (Page No. 334)

Solution:

No, Mode may not beat the centre always.

Question 3.

Does the mode change ? If another observation is added to the data in Example ? Comment. (Page No. 334)

Solution:

The data given in example 4 is as follows :

0, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5, 6.

Except 2 and 3, the other observations occur only once. 2 occurs three times while 3 occurs two times. Any other observation except 2 and 3 is added, the mode of the data will not be affected. If 3 is added, then 3 occurs three times. There are already three 2’s in the data. Hence, the data has two modes (i.e.,) 3 and 2. If 2 is added, then 2 occurs four times. So, the mode of the data will be 2, (i.e.,) the mode of the data is not affected because on observing the data prior to the addition of 2, we can say that the mode is 2.

Question 4.

If the maximum value of an observation in the data in example 4 is changed to 8, would the mode of the data be affected ? Comment. (Page No. 334)

Solution:

If the maximum value is altered to 8, the mode remains the same. Mode doesn’t consider the values but consider their frequencies only.

Question 1.

It depends upon the demand of the situation whether we are interested in finding the average marks obtained by the students or the marks obtained by most of the students. (AS_{3}) (Page No. 336)

a) What do we find in the first situation ?

Solution:

We find A.M.

b) What do we find in the second situation?

Solution:

We find the mode.

Question 2.

Can mode be calculated for grouped data which unequal class sizes ? (Mar. ’15 (AP)) (Page No. 336)

Solution:

Yes. mode can be calculated for grouped data with unequal class sizes.
