The following frequency distribution table shows the distances travelled by some rickshaws in a day. Observe the table and answer the following questions

Class
(Daily distance travelled in km)
Continuous
Classes
Frequency
(no.of. rickshaws)
Cumulative
frequency
less than type
60 – 64 59.5 – 64.5 10 10
65 – 69 64.5 – 69.5 34 10 + 34 = 44
70 – 74 69.5 – 74.5 58 44 + 58 = 102
75 – 79 74.5 – 79.5 82 102 + 82 = 184
80 – 84 79.5 – 84.5  10 184 + 10 = 194
85 – 89  84.5 – 89.5  6 194 + 6 = 200
  1. Which is the modal class? Why?
  2. Which is the median class and why?
  3. Write the cumulative frequency (C.F) of the class preceding the median class.
  4. What is the class interval (h) to calculate median?

Solution

1. Model class is the class that contains highest frequency i.e.
highest frequency = 82

highest frequency class = 75 – 79

2. Median class is the class that contain `(N/2)^(th)` term. Where N is total frequency. 

N = 200

`(N/2) = 100`

`(N/2)^(th)` term will lie  in  (70 – 74) class

3. Cumulative frequency = 44

4. Median class = 70 – 74

OR

69.5 – 74.5 ......(Continuous)

h = U.l.  – L.l.

 = 74.5 – 69.5 = 5

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
