Calculate the mean and median rainfall in Kerala during this week. Why is the mean less than median?

Answer:

Mean = Total amount of rain / No. of districts

= 700/14 = 50

In ascending order:

13.5, 20.5, 30.5, 33.5, 45.5, 50.3, 53.4, 56.3, 56.4, 56.9, 56.9, 66.7, 70.6, 89

Median =53.4+56.3/2=54.85

The mean is less than median because the number contains are far small and large numbers than mean.

Sslc Statistics Solutions Kerala Syllabus Questions 3.

Prove that for a set of numbers arithmetic sequence, the mean and median are equal.

Answer:

Let a, a+d, a+3d, a+4d are the numbers of an arithmetic sequence, then median = a+a+4d/2=2a+4d/2=a+2d

Median will be the term which is at center = a + 2d

∴ A set of numbers in arithmetic sequence, the mean and median are equal.

Statistics Class 10 State Syllabus Question 2.

Answer:

Weight | Number |

less than 45.5 | 5 |

less than 50.5 | 12 |

less than 55.5 | 22 |

less than 60.5 | 30 |

less than 65.5 | 34 |

Total number of children = 34

It is an even number, so we will take the half of sum of weight of the children, those are in the 17 and 18 positions. According to this child between 13 and 22 have weight between 50.5 and 55.5. Our required children (between and 17 and 18) are in these positions. Divide 5 years from 50.5 to 55.5 into 10 equal, parts. Let consider each part have one child.

Weight of each part = 5/10 = 1/2.

Hence weight of a child in 13th place is in middle of 50.5 and 51. That is 50.75. Further, each student’s weight is increased by 5.

Hence weight of the man in the 17th position

Median =52.75+53.25/2=53

Hss Live Guru 10th Maths Kerala Syllabus Question 11.

The mean of the frequency table given below is 50. Then find out the values of a and b.

Answer:

mean = 50

∴ 3480+30a+70b/120=50

30a + 70b = 6000 – 3480

30a + 70b = 2520 (1)

17 + 32 + 19 + a + b = 120

68 + a + b = 120,

a + b = 52 (2)

(2) x 30 => 30a + 30b = 1560

30a + 70b = 2520,

30a + 30b = 1560,

40b = 960,

b = 960/40 = 24,

a + 24 = 52

a = 52 – 24 = 28,

∴ a = 28, b = 24

a. Height of the 21st child is the median height.

b. Height of the 21st child is between 145 cm and 150 cm.

c. Methods to find the median are.

1. Divide 5cm in between 145 cm and 150 cm into 10 equal sections.

2. Consider that the height of each sub-group is exactly on the midpoint of the subgroup.

Height of the 14th child is in between 145 cm and 145 5/10 cm.

i.e., 145 5/20 cm.

Similarly, the height of the 15th student is in between 145 5/10 cm and

Hence height of each child can be increased by 5/10 cm.

There are 7 children to reach the 21st child from 14th child.

i.e., 14 th term is 145 5/20 and common difference is 5/10.

Mean is the 21 st term of the arithmetic sequence.

### Statistics Menton Map

Arithmetic mean is the sum divided by the number of terms.

Mean = sumofterms/Numberofterms

When the numbers are arranged in a ascending order, then the middle term is the median.

i.e., half of the total frequency will give the median.
