Sum

The median of the following incomplete table is 92. Find the missing frequencies:

C.I. 30 – 50 50 – 70 70 – 90 90 – 110 110 – 130 130 – 150 Total
f 6 ? 18 20 ? 10 80

Solution

Let a and b be the missing frequencies of the class 50 – 70 and class 110 – 130 respectively.
We construct the less than cumulative frequency table as given below:

C.I. f Less than cumulative frequency
(c.f.)
30 – 50 6 6
50 – 70 a 6 + a
70 – 90 18 24 + a
90 – 110 20 44 + a ← Q2
110 – 130 B 44 + a + b
130 – 150 10 54 + a + b
Total N = 80  

Here, N = 54 + a + b
Since, N = 80
∴ 54 + a + b = 80
∴ a + b = 26  .........(i)
Given, Median = Q2 = 92
∴ Q2 lies in the class 90 – 110.

∴ L = 90, h = 20, f = 20, `(2"N")/4`=`(2xx80)/4` = 40, c.f. = 24 + a

∴ Q2 = `"L"+"h"/"f"((2"N")/4-"c.f.")`

∴ 92 = `90 + 20/20[40 - (24 + "a")]`

∴ 92 – 90 = 40 – 24 – a
∴ 2 = 16 – a
∴ a = 14
Substituting the value of a in equation (i), we get
14 + b = 26
∴ b = 26 – 14 = 12
∴ 14 and 12 are the missing frequencies of the class 50 – 70 and class 110 – 130 respectively.
