Solution

Bivariate frequency table can be prepared by taking class intervals 80 – 90, 90 – 100, …, etc for X and 500 – 600, 600 –700, …., etc for Y.
Bivariate frequency distribution is as follows:

 Y/X 80 – 90 90 – 100 100 – 110 110 – 120 120 – 130 Total (fy) 500 – 600 – I (1) – II (2) I (1) 4 600 – 700 II (2) II (2) II (2) I (1) – 7 700 – 800 I (1) IIII (4) – – I (1) 6 800 – 900 I (1) III (3) I (1) – III (3) 8 900 – 1000 III (3) I (1) – I (1) – 5 Total (fx) 7 11 3 4 5 30

Marginal frequency distribution of X:

 X 80 – 90 90 – 100 100 – 110 110 – 120 120 – 130 Total frequency 7 11 3 4 5 30

Marginal frequency distribution of Y:

 Y 500 – 600 600 – 700 700 – 800 800 – 900 900 – 100 Total Frequency 4 7 6 8 5 30
