#### Question

The water bills (in rupees) of 32 houses in a certain street for the period 1.1.98 to. 31.3.98 are given below:
56, 43, 32, 38, 56, 24, 68, 85, 52, 47, 35, 58, 63, 74, 27, 84, 69, 35, 44, 75, 55, 30, 54, 65, 45, 67, 95, 72, 43, 65, 35, 59.
Tabulate the data and resent the data as a cumulative frequency table using 70-79 as one of the class intervals.

#### Solution

The minimum bill is 24. Rs
Maximum bill is Rs 95.
Range = maximum bill – minimum bill
= 95-24
=71
Given class in terval is 70-79, So class size
= 79-70 = 9
∴ Number of classes ="Range"/"Class size"=71/9
=7.88

∴ Number of classes = 8

The cumulative frequency distribution table is as

 Bills No. of houses (Frequency) Cumulative frequency 16-25 1 1 25-34 3 4 34-43 5 9 43-52 4 13 52-61 7 20 61-70 6 26 70-79 3 29 79-88 2 31 88-97 1 32

Is there an error in this question or solution?
