##### Question 6. The heights of boys and girls of IX class of a school are given below.

Compare the heights of the boys and girls.
[Hint: Fliid median heights of boys and girls]

Solution:

Boys median class =37+1/2 = 38/2 = 19th observation
∴ Median height of boys = 147 cm
Girls median class =29+1/2 = 30/2= 15th observation
∴ Median height of girls = 152 cm

##### Question 9. The mean (average) weight of three students is 40 kg. One of the students Ranga weighs 46 kg. The other two students, Rahim and Reshma have the same weight. Find Rahim’s weight. cgigB)

Solution:
Weight of Ranga = 46 kg
Weight of Reshma = Weight of Rahim = x kg say
Average = Sum of the weights/Number= 40kg
∴ 40 = 46+x+x/3
3 x 40 = 46 + 2x
2x = 120 - 46 = 74
∴ x =74/2 = 37 .
∴ Rahim’s weight = 37 kg.

##### Question 10. The donations given to an orphanage home by the students of different classes of a secondary school are given below.

Find the mean, median and mode of the data.

Solution:

##### Question 11. There are four unknown numbers. The mean of the first two numbers is 4 and the mean of the first three is 9. The mean of all four numbers is 15; if one of the four numbers is 2 find the other numbers.

Solution:
We know that mean = sum / number
Given that, Mean of 4 numbers = 15
⇒ Sum of the 4 numbers = 4 x 15 = 60
Mean of the first 3 numbers = 9
⇒ Sum of the first 3 numbers = 3 x 9 = 27
Mean of the first 2 numbers = 4
⇒ Sum of the first 2 numbers = 2 x 4 = 8
Fourth number = sum of 4 numbers - sum of 3 numbers = 60 - 27 = 33
Third number = sum of 3 numbers - sum of 2 numbers = 27 - 8 = 19
Second number = Sum of 2 numbers - given number = 8-2 = 6
∴ The other three numbers are 6, 19, 33.
