# Calculate the Missing Frequency from the Following Distribution, It Being Given that the Median of the Distribution is 24. - CBSE Class 10 - Mathematics

#### Question

Calculate the missing frequency from the following distribution, it being given that the median of the distribution is 24.

 Age in years 0 - 10 10 - 20 20 - 30 30 - 40 40 - 50 No. of persons 5 25 ? 18 7

#### Solution

 Class interval Frequency Cumulative frequency 0 - 10 5 5 10 - 20 25 30 20 - 30 x 30 + x 30 - 40 18 48 + x 40 - 50 7 55 + x N = 55 + x

Given

Median = 24

Then median class = 20 - 30

l = 20, h = 30 - 20 = 10, F = 30 and f = x

Median =l+{(N/2-F)/f}xxh

24=20+((55+x)/2-30)/x xx10

24 - 20=((55+x)/2-30)/x xx10

4x=((55+x)/2-30)xx10

4x xx2=(55 + x -60)xx10

8x = 550 + 10x - 600

10x - 8x = 600 - 550

2x = 50

x = 25

∴ Missing frequency = 25

Is there an error in this question or solution?
