Question

The lengths of 40 leaves of a plant are measured correct to the nearest millimeter, and the data obtained is represented in the following table:

Length (in mm)

Number or leaves fi

118 − 126

3

127 − 135

5

136 − 144

9

145 − 153

12

154 − 162

5

163 − 171

4

172 − 180

2

Find the median length of the leaves.

(Hint: The data needs to be converted to continuous classes for finding the median, since the formula assumes continuous classes. The classes then change to 117.5 − 126.5, 126.5 − 135.5… 171.5 − 180.5)
