Solution
Number of students born in the month of August = 6
Total number of students = 40
`"P(Students born in the month of August) "="Number of students born in August"/"Total number of students"=6/40=3/20`

A teacher wanted to analyse the performance of two sections of students in a mathematics test of 100 marks. Looking at their performances, she found that a few students got under 20 marks and a few got 70 marks or above. So she decided to group them into intervals of varying sizes as follows: 0 − 20, 20 − 30… 60 − 70, 70 − 100. Then she formed the following table:-
Marks | Number of students |
0 - 20 | 7 |
20 - 30 | 10 |
30 - 40 | 10 |
40 - 50 | 20 |
50 - 60 | 20 |
60 - 70 | 15 |
70 - above | 8 |
Total 90 |
