Solution

The frequency distribution of the weights of new born babies in a hospital on a particular day is represented in the following table:
(i) The weights of the newly born babies in descending order are as follows: 

 

Weight Tally marks Frequency
3.1 I 1
3.0 I 1
2.9 II 2
2.8 II 2
2.7 II 2
2.6 I 1
2.5 II 2
2.4 I 1
2.3 I 1
2.2 I 1
2.1 I 1

(ii) The highest weight is 3.1 kg.
(iii) The lowest weight is 2.1 kg.
(iv) The range is 3.1\[-\]2.1, i.e. 1 kg.
(v) The number of babies born on that day is 15.
(vi) The number of babies whose weights are below 2.5 kg is 4 (i.e. 2.4, 2.3, 2.2, 2.1).
(vii) The number of babies whose weights are more than 2.8 kg is 4 (i.e. 3.1, 3.0, 2.9, 2.9).
(viii) The number of babies whose weight is 2.8 kg is 2.
