Statistics Class 9 Kerala Syllabus Question 1.
The weight of 6 players in a volleyball team are all different and the average weight is 60 kilograms.
i. Prove that the team has at least one player weighing more than 60 kilograms.
ii. Prove that the team has at least one player weighing less than 60 kilograms.
i. Total weight of 6 players = 60 × 6 = 360 kg
The team contains players having weights 60, less than 60 or greater than 60. If the weights of all the players are less than 60, the average will also be less than 60. This is not possible. Therefore there will be at least one player having weight greater than 60.

ii. If the weight of all the players are greater than 60, the average will also be greater than 60. Therefore there will be at least one player having weight less than 60.

The table shows the children in a class, sorted according to the marks they got for a math test.

 Marks Children 2 1 3 2 4 5 5 4 6 6 7 11 8 10 9 4 10 2

Calculate the average marks of the class.
Total number of children is 45. Repeated addition can be written as multiplication. Average mark = $$\frac { Total }{ Number }$$ = $$\frac { 297 }{ 45 }$$ = 6.6

The table below shows the days in a month sorted according to the amount of rainfall in a locality

 Rainfall(mm) Days 54 3 56 5 58 6 55 3 50 2 47 4 44 5 41 2

What is the average rainfall per day during this month?

 Rainfall(mm) Days Total 54 3 54 × 3 = 162 56 5 56 ×5 = 280 58 6 58 × 6 = 348 55 3 55 × 3 = 165 50 2 50 × 2=100 47 4 47 × 4 =188 44 5 44 × 5 = 220 41 2 41 × 2 = 82 Total 30 1545

The average of the rain fall per day during that month = $$\frac { Total rain fall }{ Number of days }$$
= $$\frac { 1545 }{ 30 }$$ = 51.5mm

Kerala Syllabus 9th Standard Maths Question 4.
The table below shows children in a class sorted according to their weights.

 Weight (kg) Number of children 21 – 23 4 23 – 25 — 25 – 27 7 27 – 29 6 29 – 31 3 31 – 33 1

The mean weight is calculated as 26 kilograms. How many children have weights between 23 and 25 kilograms?
Let’s prepare the table for finding the mean by considering the number of children in the group 23 to 25, as ‘x’.

 Weight (kg) No.of children Mid value Total weight 21 – 23 4 22 22 × 4 = 88 23 – 25 X 24 24 × x = 24x 25 – 27 7 26 26 × 7 = 182 27 – 29 6 28 28 × 6 = 168 29 – 31 3 30 30 × 3 = 90 31 – 33 1 32 32 × 1 = 32 Total 21 + x 560 + 24x

Mean weight = 26 kg i.e; the number of children having weight between 23 to 25 is 7.
