The above frequency distribution table represents the concentration of sulphur dioxide in the air in parts per million of a certain city for 30 days. Using this table, find the probability of the concentration of sulphur dioxide in the interval 0.12 − 0.16 on any of these days. - Mathematics

 Concentration of SO2 (in ppm) Number of days (Frequency) 0.00 − 0.04 4 0.04 − 0.08 9 0.08 − 0.12 9 0.12 − 0.16 2 0.16 − 0.20 4 0.20 − 0.24 2 Total 30

The above frequency distribution table represents the concentration of sulphur dioxide in the air in parts per million of a certain city for 30 days. Using this table, find the probability of the concentration of sulphur dioxide in the interval 0.12 − 0.16 on any of these days.

Solution

Number days for which the concentration of sulphur dioxide was in the interval of 0.12 − 0.16 = 2

Total number of days = 30

Hence, required probability, P = 2/30 = 1/15

Is there an error in this question or solution?
