S Chand Class 9 ICSE Maths Solutions Chapter 15 Mean, Median and Frequency Polygon Ex 15(C)

Question 1.
In a class of 60 boys, the marks obtained in a monthly test were as under :

 Marks Students 10-20 10 20-30 25 30-40 12 40-50 08 50-60 05

Draw a frequency polygon to represents the above data.
Solution:

 Marks Mid-point Students 10-20 15 10 20-30 25 25 30-40 35 12 40-50 45 08 50-60 55 05

Now plot the points (15, 10), (25, 25), (35, 12), (45, 8) and (55, 5) on the graph and join them and complete the frequency polygon as shown.

Question 2.
Represent the following data by frequency polygon?

 Marks Students 0-10 3 10-20 7 20-30 6 30-40 2 40-50 5

Solution:

 Marks Mid-point Students 0-10 5 3 10-20 15 7 20-30 25 6 30-40 35 2 40-50 45 5

Now plot the points (5, 3), (15, 7), (25, 6), (35, 2) and (45, 5) on the graph and join them and complete the frequency polygon as shown.

Question 3.

 Class Frequency 20-29 7 30-39 3 40-49 5 50-59 2 60-69 5

Solution:

 Class Mid-point Frequency 20-29 25 7 30-39 35 3 40-49 45 5 50-59 55 2 60-69 65 5

Now plot the points (25, 7), (35, 3), (45, 5), (55, 2) and (65, 5) on the graph and join them and complete the frequency polygon as shown.

Question 4.
Rohit asked people to draw a line 5 cm long using a straight edge without any markings on it. Here are the lengths in centimetres of the lines drawn :
4.3 3.2 3.9 4.7 5.8 6.1 5.7 6.2 6.5 3.7 4.2 5.1 6.5 7.2 7.4 3.7 5.8 4.2 4.1 5.0 5.1 4.7 3.2 3.5 5.2 2.9 2.8 4.3 5.1 4.8
(a) Draw up a grouped frequency table for the data. Use a class interval of 1 centimetre.
(b) Draw a frequency polygon for the data.
Solution:
Highest length = ?
Lowest length = 7.4

Now plot the points (2.5, 2), (3.5, 6), (4.5, 8), (5.5, 8), (6.5, 4) and (7.5, 2) on the graph and join them and complete the frequency polygon as shown.

Question 5.
For the following data, draw a histogram and a frequency polygon.

 Age (in years) No. of persons 0-6 6 6-12 11 12-18 25 18-24 35 24-30 18 30 – 36 12 36-42 6

Solution:

 Age (in years) No. of persons (f) 0-6 6 6-12 11 12-18 25 18-24 35 24-30 18 30 – 36 12 36-42 6

Represent age along x-axis and no. of persons on y-axis and complete the histogram. By joining the mid-points of each histogram in order, we get as shown here.
