Mean = S(fx)/n =66400/100 = 664

Median = size of ( Nth /2) value

Median = 100/2 = 50th value

50 th value lies in the (599.5 - 699.5 ) median class

Median = L + h/f(N/2 c)

Where L = low class boundary of the median class.

h = size of median class interval.

N= Total number of observations Sum of frequencies).

C = Cumulative frequencies preceding median class

Thus L = 599.5

h = 699.5 599.5 = 100

N = 100

C = 32

Substituting the following in our formulae

=599.5 +100/23 (100/2 32)

=599.5 + 4.35(50-32)

=599.5 + 4.35(18)

=599.5 +78.3

Median = 677.8

Mode

Mode = L + (fm fm-1)/ {(fm fm-1) + (fm fm+1)}

L = low class boundary of the modal class.

Fm-1 = in the frequency of the group before the modal group

Fm = is the frequency of the modal group

Fm+1 = is the frequency of the group after modal class.

W =is the group with

L =599.5

fm-1 = 7

f m = 23

f m+1 =20

w = width of the modal class

substituting this in our formula we have

mode = 599.5 +{ (23-7) x}/ {(23 -7) (23 -20)}

mode = 599.9 + {(16/19) x 100 }

mode= 684.11

(4). Finding variance and standard deviation

Variance = S(X2/n) x2

Sx2 according top our frequency table = 47750000

N = 100

Mean = 664

Thus mean squared = 6642

= 440896

Substituting the following in the variance formulae

= {(47750000/100) 440896)

= 477500 440896

d2 = 36604

Standard deviation = variance

Standard deviation =36604

Standard deviation = 191.32

(5) .Compare mean, median, and state which you prefer as measure of location :From our data, our graph will portrays negative skew; the mean has the tendency of being pulled on the left side, which shows that the distribution is not symmetrical. Thus, median would be preferred as the measure of location of this data.

(6) .DRAW BAR GRAPH USING THE ABOVE:

(7). Find z value for smallest and largest data:

Z = (x-u)/d

X u ( X-u)

250 664 -414

350 664 -314

450 664 -214

550 664 -114

650 664 -14

750 664 86

850 664 186

950 664 286

Replacing the values in our formulae

Standard deviation = 191.32 as calculated earlier

Z = - 414/191.32

Z = -2.19

Z = 286/191.32 = 1.49

2.16 < z < 1.49
