### Plus One Maths Statistics Three Mark Questions and Answers

Question 1.

Find the mean deviation about the median for the following data: (3 score each)

- 13, 17, 16, 14, 11, 13, 10, 16, 11, 18, 12, 17.
- 36, 72, 46, 42, 60, 45, 53, 46, 51, 49.

Answer:

1. Arrange the data in the ascending order we have;

10, 11, 11, 12, 13, 13, 14, 16, 16, 17, 17, 18

Here n = 12. So median is the average of 6^{th} and 7^{th} observations.

Therefore; Median, M =\(\frac{13+14}{2}\) = 13.5

Mean deviation = \(\frac{\sum_{i=1}^{n}\left|x_{i}-M\right|}{n}=\frac{28}{12}\) = 2.33

2. Arrange the data in the ascending order we have; 36, 42, 45, 46, 46, 49, 51, 53, 60, 72

Here n = 10. So median is the average of 5^{th} and 6^{th} observations.

Therefore; Median, M = \(\frac{46+49}{2}\) = 47.5

Mean deviation = \(\frac{\sum_{i=1}^{n}\left|x_{i}-M\right|}{n}=\frac{70}{10}\) = 7.

Question 2.

The mean and standard deviation of marks obtained by 50 students of a class in three subjects, mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry are given below:

Which of the three subject shows the highest variability in marks and which shows the lowest?

Answer:

For Mathematics:

\(\bar{x}\) = 42, σ = 12

∴ CV of Mathematics = \(\frac{12}{42}\) × 100 = 28.57%

For Physics:

\(\bar{x}\) = 32, σ = 15

∴ CV of Physics = \(\frac{15}{32}\) × 100 = 46.88%

For Chemistry:

\(\bar{x}\) = 40.9, σ = 20

∴ CV of Chemistry = \(\frac{20}{40.9}\) × 100 = 48.9%

Thus Chemistry with highest CV shows highest variability and Mathematics with lowest CV shows lowest variability.

Question 2.

Find the mean deviation about the median for the following data: (4 score each)

1.

2.

Answer:

1.

\(\frac{\sum_{i=1}^{n} f_{i}}{2}=\frac{26}{2}\) = 13

The c.f just greater than 13 is 14 and corresponding value of x is 7. Therefore; median, M = 7

Hence; M.D about median

2.

\(\frac{\sum_{i=1}^{n} f_{i}}{2}=\frac{29}{2}\) = 14.5

The c.f just greater than 14.5 is 21 and corresponding value of x is 30. Therefore; median, M = 30

Hence; M.D about median

Question 4.

Find the mean deviation about the median for the following data: (4 score each)

1.

2.

Answer:

1.

Median class is the class in which the \(\left(\frac{N}{2}\right)^{th}\) observation lies.

\(\frac{N}{2}=\frac{50}{2}\) = 25

Median class = 20 – 30

M = Median

2.

Median class is the class in which the \(\left(\frac{N}{2}\right)^{th}\) observation lies.

\(\frac{N}{2}=\frac{100}{2}\) = 50

Median class = 35.5 – 40.5

M = Median

Question 5.

Find the variance and standard deviation of 3, 4, 6, 5, 5, 3, 8, 1, 7, 5

Answer:

\(\frac{259}{10}\) – (4.7)^{2} = 25.9 – 22.09 = 3.8

Standard Deviation (σ) = \(\sqrt{\text {Variance}}\) = \(\sqrt{3.8}\) =1.95.

Question 6.

Find the variance and standard deviation of

Answer:

Standard Deviation (σ) = \(\sqrt{\text {Variance}}\)

= \(\sqrt{15.08}\) = 3.88.

Question 7.

An analysis of monthly wages paid to workers in two firms A and B, belonging to the same industry, gives the following result.

- Which firm A or B pays larger amount as monthly wages?
- Which firm A or B, shows greater variability in individual wages?

Answer:

1. Firm: A

Number of wages earners (n_{1}) = 586

Number of wages earners (\(\bar{x}_{1}\)) = 5253

Total monthly wages = 5253 × 586 = 3078258

Firm: B

Number of wages earners (n_{1}) = 648

Number of wages earners (\(\bar{x}_{1}\)) = 5253

Total monthly wages = 5253 × 648 = 3403944

2. Since both the firms have same mean of monthly wages, so the firm with greater variance will have more variability in individual wages. Thus firm B will have more variability in individual wages.

Question 8.

The sum and sum of squares corresponding to length x (in cm) and weight y (in gm) of 50 plant products are given below:

which is more varying, the length or weight?

Answer:

Here,

Now

C.V of weight = \(\frac{1.38}{5.22}\) × 100 = 26.44

C.V of weight > C.V of length

Thus weight have more variability than length
